The highlight of the project is the ramp which on the outside of the building which consists of a digital art gallery. The ecological part of the built is the unique façade system that purifies smog and acts as an air purifier which comprises of an advanced lighting system. The lighting system corresponds to the AQI index that monitors the current air pollution levels and illuminates the building façade according the level of pollution.
For the landscaping, Autochine features an urban forest alongside the built, the idea being to neutralise the carbon footprint that is emitted by the building.
For accessibility 2 futuristic accesses have been added i.e. a skywalk access level has been integrated for commuters travelling by metro to directly access the building. An uber air access level is also included to fulfil the need for air cabs in the near future.
