The Academy is distinguished by its diagonal form cantilevering towards the corner of the existing bank campus. A concrete base supports two parallel structures which project into the landscape. The central void formed between the two classroom blocks accommodates a cafeteria, auditorium and recreational spaces. Externally the concrete framed building is clad with stretched copper panels. Each double folded panel has a chequered appearance when rotated; the building looks opaque in daylight and transparent at night. In the central space, the copper is replaced by translucent moveable fabrics in institutional colours. A double facade controls excessive light and both the roof and facade are sealed with transparent air cushions (ETFE).
