Real shame, it's nice building and looks so modern.

It tastes something like postmodernism, but it has beautiful béton brut.

Deconstructivism to the extreme.
I saw a photo of that building before, I didn't think it was real.

As I said here, there aren't many good pictures of the American Embassy in Guatemala, but I got another one:

They will be moving to a new building next year apparently. Don't know what they're going to do to this one.

I think its days are numbered... See more info in this thread in the UK North East England, Newcastle Metro Area, Archbold Terrace Projects (Scottish Life House / Eaga House / Sandyford House) | Newcastle | Various | U/C (I don't have enough posts to be allowed to insert a link, so this is the best I can do, sorry).

I am somewhat ambivalent about that whole area. It has been squeezed in between roads and railways, cut off from a natural flow to and from the surrounding areas, which probably impacted in their recent use of the whole complex of buildings. I think it stood empty or under used for a long time now. The main quality of the architecture is probably its austerity and simplicity.
