||Olsen Kundig - 242 State Street. This building has a sliding facade, that is a two storey window pane, that can be raised and lowered to a desired height. To operate it, there is a wheel that you can turn, the large wheel allows for less force to be needed to operate, this is linked to a series of pulleys and a counterweight on the exterior of the building, that help reduce the effort needed to raise the wall. The open facade allows air circulation throughout the building. The exposed pulley mechanisms give an industrial factory like feeling to the space. The high ceilings make the space airy and bright. The large opening in the wall makes it feel more welcoming and inviting.
