For this assignment I chose to analyze the IAC building designed by Frank Gehry.
In terms of systems I deduced that the building consists of:
System A ) simple pilllars arranged in a sequence allowed by the concrete columns behind the building’s glazing.
System B ) a “twisting” effect on these pillars, due to the vertical mullions changing in angle, most often towards the south.
System C ) white fritted glass that progressively reveals clear glass toward the center, giving the building the appearance of either the sky, the hudson, or the buildings that surround the structure.
