No, It was based on original structure.

Hmm, I preferred the old International Style and Bauhaus of the original buildings in Milan. All they needed was new windows and maybe more modern facade materials.

Winchester Lofts

A great example of how even some "brutalist" buildings can be vastly improved with some imagination. There are others, however, that are beyond saving - lol

The better glass is great, as is the removal of those anti-pedestrian walls at street level, but the trees do most of the improving. Talk about a fig leaf on brutalism.

I just feel the necessity to point out the fact that this is a great example of DF's sinking: Look at the Monument's quantity of doorsteps in 1985 and now. They had to add 14 doorsteps because the whole neighborhood that surrounds it is sinking.

BTW, I think that there are better mention-worthy renovations in Mexico, than the "Ángel de la Independencia". The whole city had an incredible change in just a few years.
