So… I was walking down the Queen Street Mall looking around at the building facades and went “Wow – Look at that one!”
Three faces of the building have these metal extrusions – a fairly common feature.
The difference here is that they have created a billowing effect as if the building was encased in a giant sheet that is being moved around in the breeze.
I am only guessing but expect that it has some sort of sound dispersion effect or at the very least protection from the sun – it is on the southern side of the building which (in the southern hemisphere) suggests to me that it is about sound as much as sunlight – Either way it looks great!
If you are in Brisbane, you can find the building in Albert Street on the Eastern side of the Queen Street Mall.
