A spot of green

Across the canal from Saxo Bank and Horten is a new mall called Waterfront. Not the biggest one in town this one sports 35 shops and cafés on a total of 32.000 sq meters.

What stroke me, as I passed it (and no, I haven't been inside, malls are not my thing) is the facade of this black square building. At a distance it looks like it got green spots all over, but in reality it's holes in the black steel with a green lining underneath that creates this effect. A nice touch, but I sure hope that they have thought about corrosion and drainage with all these holes.
