The bold design, which allows light to flood into the building, would have been difficult to achieve in glass.  Marlon FSX, being light weight and easy to cold bend, allowed the impressive design to be realised. Additionally, in the external location, in a country with a high level of sunlight, it was important to use a UV resistant product to prevent yellowing, protect the product's strength and ensure a good service life.
