yess, now it looks like the entrance to the fortress, especially beacause of the narrow stairs and the big wall.

in the new version,there is no public space in fact. just a corridor from a street to the lobby. no water, no stairs.

yup, its a growing trend here as it looks, to deface even our most important national projects for "redesigns" that are just plainly disgraceful. And all is because of $$.... Let's see where that takes them.
