The facade’s design comprises a graphical representation of Aspen trees. These have been rendered to depict the tree’s characteristics, specifically the white bark and contrasting foliage. This design was conceived in collaboration with technical artists to ensure accuracy in the representation.


Given the representation of Aspen trees, the artwork also aimed to evoke feelings of serenity, grounding, and a connection to nature - a stark contrast to the bustling urban surroundings. This evocation serves as a daily reminder of the importance of nature, even within urban confines.
