This design brings the idea of the ocularcentic experience of architecture to light through the faceted reflective interior condition. The viewer experiences the space as a reflection back on themselves, in many different lights and angles while also being intertwined with the reflections of the exterior conditions. It encourages people to interact with it by taking images and looking through the funnel-like apertures to view notable Torontoian landmarks such as the CN Tower, Wave Deck, Lake Ontario, and Rogers Center.
