I love that highly textured concrete in the Tenerife building. It should be used more often.

Yeah, that one definitely hits on a number of styles. Not every building sticks to just one style - many, and many of the best, combine styles. But it has the elements of heaviness and a geologic sense to it.

I think it was short-sighted to demolish the entire building. They should have knocked down the boring low-rise crap next to it, and retained at least some part of the old library.
