Architectural Detail

I've focussed in on an architectural detail: it won't be obvious to anyone what it is. Here is the whole building, which comes across as just another modern steel and glass office block, the photo is of the facing panels. However, these panels are natural Welsh slate. I'm not quite convinced by the execution, but I love the idea of the synthesis of man made and natural substances, and I love the pattern it makes, too.

Actually, Ham, the building itself is quite unusual. I love the details in the close-up!

It is sad that I took one look at it and thought, "louvers on a window." I'm an architect, so I guess that would be cheating.
