A strongly articulated cast-concrete-framed second story centers on aluminum sunscreened windows and cast-concrete panels. These, in turn, contrast with the red Roman brick veneer to make a powerful modern statement, with Chinese overtones introduced by cast-concrete calligraphy panels and a thin, subtly flared, cantilevered concrete canopy.
