Dichroic glass was used on the exterior - to mimic the effect when there is an annual burning of the grass to encourage new growth. The dichroic glass was generated by a company in Calgary, Canada. Interesting that samples provided by existing companies were too subtle for the architect. I have a feeling that one needs to see this building first hand, as the photos probably don’t do it justice.
