The aluminum panels featured on the ‘Green Cast’ façade were penetrated with dozens of small holes that would allow foliage to sprout throughout the front of the structure. The die-cast aluminum panels were formed against the building’s existing synthetic resin forming the rugged, lumpy appearance seen on the exterior.
