what a unique update, and beautiful picture.

The roof on that short addition is absolutely horrible. Is that the final product? because I dont see how that roof matches this building at all.

I like this building but yet I really don't care for it all that much. I don't go out of my way to photograph the site. But, I expect to change my mind shortly after it's finished. I think many people will.

Don't worry, those joints (that terribly look like botched gaps) are goin to get properly caulked and sealed
[the facades are prefabricated, if you remember]

By 2100, we probably have nothing but 'vertical' cities. At least in some parts of the world.

Not quite an amusing conception if you ask me..
