Black Panther

I think the reason I like this building so much is because it is actually called the MP09 Black Panther.  Designed by the Austrian firm GSArichitects, the Black Panther is a headquarters for a company specializing in jewelry and spectacles (the Patchleitner Group).  The concrete base supports a large, black tiled cantilever, jutting out like a panther ready to pounce (this is what they intended and not my own creative license).

"The desired expression of concentrated tension and dynamism, amplified by long window strips, suits the company’s philosophy that enabled a small family business from the post-war years to develop into a company of global reach..."
