This composition is inspired by an office building based in Hartford, Connecticut, particularly known for not just its vibrant red tints, tones, and shades, but its optical illusion it gives to passers-by in the daytime. The top of the building is inspired by the Intercontinental Hotel based in Lagos, Nigeria. The building is reminiscent of Modernist glass skyscrapers. Fittingly, the building's red facade could symbolise love which comes heart; with that being said, this imaginary building stands as a the central part of the city, situated in the heart of Hartford (an alliteration).
