No cookie cutter building or technology
Having had previous success with the unbonded braced frame structural system, BRJ encouraged the client and the design team to implement it in the design of their office building. The design team ran with the idea and incorporated the theme of the structural system into the façade, highlighting the structure inside of the building as well as outside of the building. A recycled idea by BRJ provided a distinctive statement by the client.
