Jim Isermann: 'The steel module design consists of shapes with 3 orientations, each powder coated in a different blue hue, a combination of which creates an illusion of cubes in three dimensions - a building block. The monumental installation of modules do not wrap the entire building. The lower 8 feet of the building are uncovered to reveal both the stucco-fication of the Beckett design and the utility of the sun screen.'
