Such a great project. Really hope the cladding doesn't ruin it.

So far the cladding on the back looks great. There's still not much to see on front, but it doesn't look bad either.

Not that anyone cares what I think, but I admit, I remember seeing the concept for this a few years ago, and thinking that it was ugly. I mean, it was a strong design, very bold and yes, had a lot of smart features. But I just thought to myself "Ugh, no."

Now that I am seeing these construction photos, I am eating my words. I really can't wait to see a photo of the completed building, and would like to see it in person one day.

I guess it goes to show, the truly visionary ones are.... well visionary. I didn't even come close to seeing what BIG saw that many years ago.

Small bits of cladding look very encouraging. We should have a better picture in about a month. BIG is one of today's most innovative architecture firms, which is why the pyramid is on Wowchitecture's list of buildings that will rock your world in 2015.
