The design process for this building is based on ability of 3d software to create a form. After creating a space-program diagram, I started arbitrarily creating sets of rules to create forms with 3d tools. Having developed 3 strategies, I chose one that I think is very flexible to accommodate the program, and be placed on the site. By the way, site is under the highway, so it has bunch of steel columns spread around.
