* This tower is located in the intersection of two important avenues in Lima, Javier Prado Este and Paseo de la República.

* The building consists of two different and joined blocks. The tower B is a rectangular construction of six floors.

The principal tower is slightly inclined towards the avenue and this has an earthquake-proof function. The front is reinforced by a mesh of titanium tubes that possesses a game of lights that change color according to the colors typical of some festivity.
Forms
The building is as multi-faceted as its architect's personality. On one side it appears fragmented, while on the other it appears smooth; seen from one point of view it looks thin, from another, massive. Two towers of different heights and materials put together.
The screen-like facade takes its curved shape from the street that flanks it.

*"Trading room" open 24 hours a day in the orthogonal base of the tower A sign projecting far out three-quarters of the way up the tower identifies the bank. A fibreglass dome covers the top two floors.

Materials

*The screen-like façade has an overlapping grid of titanium tubes, illuminated by optic fibres and diagonally aligned. This dynamic form, perceived principally by observers driving by in their vehicles, is intended as a reference to the motion of the cars.

*Even more strongly, the slightly curved façade creates the illusion that the building slopes slightly. The ground floor has stone walls imitating the impressive masonry of the ancient Inca civilisation.

* The building has been considered between the 13 most spectacular buildings of Latin America
