The Capsule is an extraordinary architectural element: an elliptic, three-dimensional structure, suspended over the atrium. Its visually-striking shape creates an intriguing focal point and is a key element of the EcoWall – the southern façade of the building. The external surface of the capsule, facing the Ayalon Highway, is coated by a net of LED lights, computer-controlled to display environmental information, such as energy statistics of the PSES Building, pollution levels in Tel Aviv, etc. Thus the capsule serves as an environmental beacon, raising awareness to ecological issues.

 

The internal space of the capsule is an executive-style room for meetings, seminars and workshops, designed to comfortably accommodate 20-35 people, and equipped with state-of-the-art multimedia technology. It is lit by natural light through upper windows facing the Atrium.
