The Tetris influence in Atelier Hapsitus' design for the new BLC bank in Beirut is undeniable. This innovative remodel calls for a new building to extend over the old one in a shape most people recognize.

Other than the obvious gamer influence, Atelier Hapsitus' design is also interesting due to its involvement in building on top of the existing structure. The existing BLC bank headquarters would still stand tall next to the new one, allowing both buildings to stand out in the crowd of skyscrapers.
