The outer skin of the 87 m high, curved reinforced concrete building of Interbank Lima with 22 storeys consists of simple, plain glass facades. They span from floor to floor. A metal mesh made of titanium tubes with a diameter of 50 mm was hung in front of the glass facades. A total of about 27 km of tubes were used.
