MegaBank explores the rise of "mega" financial institutions and their place in the urban environment. It is a projection of scale based on current trends, exploring the urban and architectural implications of this new "bigness" within the global city. MegaBank asserts a new relationship between trading floor and bank offices, upending a decades-old typology that no longer holds true for the contemporary networked, collaborative office.
