Facts

  • The north and east facades are dark gray and absorb heat, while the silver-colored south and west walls reflect heat.
  • Gunnar Birkerts & Associates won the Owens/Corning Energy Conservation Award for 1977 in the Commercial Category for the building's energy efficient design.
  • The windows are tilted outward at the top, with stainless steel sill panels that reflect sunlight upward through the panes, off metal panels above, and into the office space without reflecting heat.
  • Because of the tight tolerances required by the specially designed curtainwall, the tower's structure is unusually rigid.
