:The horizontal fins create an elegant outer skin which plays a key role in ensuring this is an environmentally friendly building. The exterior of The Walbrook Building is encased with solar shading which helps keep the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter. While the scheme's massing is determined by the historical fabric of the city, the horizontal bands of reflective brise soleil are a contemporary statement in an area where planning guidance has traditionally favoured the use of stone. Made of a glass-fibre-reinforced polymer, the louvres wrap the entire building, unifying the main volume with the receding upper levels, so that from the street the facade appears as a continuous arc.
