Night microcosmos through my fish-eye lense. Trying to convey new impressions from this intriguing fassade. The SPG Headquarter building was designed by  Giovanni Vaccarini Architetti. The envelope is comprised of a triple layer of glass added to which is a fourth layer with a ventilated chamber containing the package of micro-perforated Venetian blinds to regulate the light.

At night the glass panels are lit by white LED lights that bring the architectural block to life and make it shimmer, in dialogue with the nighttime urban landscape in which it is set.
