The buildings float above the podium, channeling the prevailing breezes to maximize pedestrian thermal comfort and provide shaded walking areas. The entire development utilizes thermal mass in a way which offsets the embodied energy of the concrete used in the project. The result is a truly solar-passive design which reduces the energy use of the buildings by more than 60% over baseline.
