Sarah Dunn: A Question

In her lecture, Sarah Dunn showed her firm’s (UrbanLab) proposal for a visitor’s information center in Chicago. She described how a driving concept was to use the various sight lines as generators of angled planes/signs that address people coming from different directions. 

Below is a rendering of the final scheme (but never built). My question to you is this: Why does it have a surface draped over it? Is it important that the signs are not seen as freestanding billboards and instead as a continuous surface? Is it better with or without the draped surface? Why?
