Omg that building is crazy fierce; curves and waffle slabs in all the right places. Hot.
I used to drive by this building every day during my stay in Costa Rica. It's one of the most remarkable buildings in the city. The top part actually stands loose from the bottom, joint on one side, bearing on the other, I always assumed it has something to do with withstanding the seismic activity. One thing is certain, this building shows it's function.
