Oliver Flindall, a student at Kingston University School of Architecture, designed this headquarters building for a construction-industry guild at London's King's Cross. Juxtaposing concrete with a dot pattern micro-texture and copper with the same pattern used for dimples and perforations, it won the architectural student design prize in the Copper in Architecture Awards.An 'information corridor'uses perforated copper to provide a dappled canopy that animates the space throughout the day.
