  4. 4. Renzo Piano is often called a "High- Tech" architect because his designs showcase technological shapes and materials. High-tech buildings are often called machine-like. Steel, aluminium, and glass combine with brightly colored braces, girders, and beams. Many of the building parts are prefabricated in a factory and assembled later. The support beams, duct work, and other functional elements are placed on the exterior of the building, where they become the focus of attention. The interior spaces are open and adaptable for many uses. HIGH TECH ARCHITECTURE

The steel-framed building, utilizes a screen of 1 5⁄8" (41.3 mm) ceramic rods mounted on the exterior of the glass curtain wall on the east, west and south facades.
