The facade is a series of curtain wall systems, one comprised of a marble template in varying sizes, textures and depths. The thinnest marble is a resin sealed thin slab that allows light to pass through to give a glowing appearance from the interior, and is lit by an interior lighting system within the wall. This being a southern facing facade in Mississippi, the other curtain wall consists of solar glazing which is intended to collect energy to operate the lighting system of the marble curtain wall. This was strictly a facade project, breaking away from the building interior functions.
