||Jean Nouvel - Institut du Monde Arabe. The walls of this building is covered in metal apertures that can be opened and closed, when they are open they can let in light, when closed, they block out the light. The light that comes through the window comes in as circular beams of light that change depending on the size of the opening. This can change the atmosphere of the space with a brighter feeling or a more moody look. Each tile comprises of different sized apertures. The metal segments of the aperture fit together in a curved shape. Each tile on window can be individually opened and closed, to give a more varied look on the inside. I find the concept and look of the facade to be very modern and it has a utilitarian look to it.
