At first glance it does look a little gratuitous. What's the function of the two flying slabs?

Hopefully to cover some rooftop study space, or at least to collect rainwater for toilets, and capture sun to generate electricity.

Yep, they're solar panels. It's Hamilton's first zero carbon building that'll generate more energy than it consumes.

That's cool, I can accept a couple non-gratuitous Alsopian slabs if that's their purpose.

The captured rainwater has to go somewhere, so hopefully to a cistern on the top floor.

Cool. If there's a reason for it beyond 'flair' then I'm for it.

There is a pair of live construction cams on the site of the new Joyce Centre up at Mohawk.
