Although the marketing of the building later suggested that its form had been inspired by the Calla lily, the shape actually owed more to the female human form - think Matisse's 'Blue Nude'. This results in the two intersecting elliptical fuses, true to MDL's philosophy, also hints at an underlying symbolism - perhaps symbol of infinity or number 8 which is propitious in Chinese culture. The highly sensual and curvilinear external form of the building complements the interiors, but also neutralise the building's scale disadvantage vis-a-vis its neighbours.
