[ RadSafe ] Japanese Reactors - Blow Out Panels?

The link below supplied by Jaro shows Unit 1 after the hydrogen explosion.
The upper panels on the building are cleanly gone, and the lower panels are
still in place. This suggests to me that the upper part of the building had
"blow out panels" designed to detach during an explosion.

Any comments from you engineers?
