Office tower facade schematic design for Arihant Headquarter office building in Chennai, India. The initial vision was to create a jeweled box that would showcase and brand the client's product. The design process was then to investigate pattern techniques that manipulate parametric modular systems to allow transitions from transparent to opaque conditions. The systems are modified for solar shading and view needs by changing the percentage between three panel types - transparent, translucent, and opaque. The first option adjusts mullion depth in response to percentage of glazing to opaque panels while the second option is a play of layering channel glass, frit glass, and clear glass.
