The corporate plaza design is inspired by the binary system, the computer science. The general layout is formal. It’s composed of two parts of different levels: sunken plaza and surrounding pedestrian space. The sunken plaza is also composed of two parts: the open space and steps.
The whole plaza is a grid system of squares 2 x 2, each square includes two materials in contrast. Each square is dominated by one material and also include an element of the other square, thus to form the contrast of two materials side by side.
