Broken Building - Dallas residents that see this building daily are purposefully tricked -- it is supposed to look differently from all four sides. Corner views provide little help as they provide more confusing and disorienting views. That was the basic premise of architect I.M. Pei when he designed the building in 1986: to use angles, triangles, planes and prisms to create a seemingly impossible visual space. Eastern view from Griffin Street flattens out one of those planes in a way that makes the structure seem broken and folded down the middle.
