The main conceptual facade design has been defined by a specific algorithm, followed by a decision tree and an optimization subset. The window areas are chosen from the selection set with the most optimised light conditions. Transitions happen by a change in slope - starting at 80% maintains the continuity of a positive / negative slope. The decision tree indicates an otherwise mandatory reversal in direction of the slope.
