@Antwerp: Both should have been solitary buildings, standing for their own.
That way this would have worked much, much better.

But the way they did it they ridiculed a lovely old building and decreased the longevity and meaning of the new architecture...

Wow, was this based on some former look, or just an upgrade?

I don't like the modernist additions much, esp. the Vienna-style rooftop extension seems unnecessarily contrasting. But the Beaux Arts architecture is spectacular and it's an overall welcome revitalisation, imposing! Look at those cast iron balustrades inside, wow!
