In the late sixties the Miesien box combined with the Corbusian brise soleil to produce some highly original and “funky” articulated facades.
A decorative reaction against the minimalist strictures of Internationalism and in a way the last gasp of the International Style.
All about the facade (with some Post-war Futurist and Brutalist overtones at times).
