A unique and complex enclosure in a major seismic zone was solved with light weight steel, tension rod and point supported glass systems. The functional space is twofold with the upper floor as a board room over an intricate sloped glazed atrium. Horizontal expansion joints accommodate the large drifts associated with the overall building design.
