UN building in Copenhagen Denmark

These 5-floor wings with white perforated aluminum louvre shutters are partially jutting the brown footing of polished brown steel they are built on. The 3m long perforated facade elements were developed especially for this building. They produce shadow to the office without blocking the view outside or the light coming in. The perforated sunblind panels can be set individually and create a vital, dynamic facade.
