Since it is an IT park, the architects came up with the concept of using the binary code as the windows. So now zeros and ones bring light into the building much as they do in the IT industry. But there’s more symbolism to be uncovered. The first, fifth and seventh rows of the windows on the second building are in red. These represent C, T & S in the binary code. By virtue of the high-performance glass used in the project, the windows bring in light, but cut the heat.
