In this version, the tower halves are separated to reduce the massing of the building and emphasize each ellipse. This creates potential green break spaces located at every second or third floor and the cleft also introduces more natural daylight into the core of the building. The exterior is shown in blue reflective glass with vertical fins that are spaced to provide more shading on east and west faces and that create a distinctive aesthetic image. The building "emerges" from a shallow reflective pool that surrounds the lobby. Solar collectors cover the sloped roof.
