Would love more insight into how these arches work in terms of functionality and purpose-- great for architectural style, but surely they exist for more than just that?
Brian - It's a double-layer box, with the inner layer sealed against the elements, so the outside is purely serving as a first layer of defense and as a means of expression (in regards to the latter, read the architects statement via the first link). At one time I thought the facade was open to allow air to move through the building, drying the Ricola stored inside, but that's not the case.
