The International (Style).



From Wikipedia ("The International", by Tom Tykwer, best known for "Run Lola Run (Lola Rennt"):

"Architecture is central to the meaning of The International. The villains inhabit impersonal buildings, built of glass and steel, which reflects Owen's discovery that anonymous forces operated by readily replaceable people run this world and there's nothing an ordinary citizen can do about it". (Philip French, in his review for The Observer)
