As envisioned by 5+design, Aura serves as a glowing lantern on the skyline. The façade consists of back-lit boxes of yellow and orange glass alternated with boxes of metal paneling printed with an abstract tulip, the city flower. Together, the cubist forms evoke gifts waiting to be unwrapped. Inside, 5+design created the Grand Arcade for fashion retailers, Market Street for the hypermarket, and a food court with cabana-like seating. There are three atrium spaces: the Water Court, with its splashing fountain; the Sky Court, hung with bronze chandeliers; and the Crystal Court, which sparkles with a glass sculpture and glass terrazzo flooring.
