AE Interest: Glass curtain walls were designed to be flexible and move when stressed. All the glass in the building is a hybrid tempered laminate that disintegrates into pebbles if broken. The skylights are designed to pull apart into sections rather than break and fall. The Crescent Wall tilts inward 21 feet at its center to keep it from moving back and forth.
