Without visiting this site my thoughts here are conjecture but: there is something about the wonderful height and modulation of this structure which feels right for the rather particular climate experienced in Queensland. With it's canyon-like atrium and beautifully articulated exterior shading elements this building seems to propose precisely the kind geological features which would offer shade, shelter and thermal relief in other similarly testing climates. There is an echo of the rock formations one would find in Arizona, the sheltering forest stands of Basil .... The architects have produced a great sense of theater and of interior landscape without resorting to gimmick or departing from the fundamental functions the space must enable.
