With its characteristic shape and the colour scheme of its facade, the UBA’s new main building blends in well with its surroundings. A four-storey ‘snake’ of offices and functional rooms wraps around a public forum and the atrium, which is reserved for Agency staff. Both spaces are covered by a glass shed roof, into which textile solar protection and – over the atrium – a photovoltaic system has been integrated.
