Yeah, I think it does, as this project is nowhere near being mainly a MoMA expansion. It is mainly a 75-story tower called "Tour de Verre" with the three lower-most floors being for the museum.

Would I call Rem Koolhaas' newly proposed Brewery Site Project for Copenhagen "Danish Architecture Centre" just because DAC makes up 20 % of the multi-functional building?

Seems France to me. Didn't know this was going to be the name.

Of course it's French (France is the country!). The architect Jean Nouvel of Atelier Nouvel (Nouvel Studio) probably called it that in his native language and the building being for an arty lot, the name stuck. Tour de Verre = Tower of Glass, or, Glass Tower, whichever you prefer. Sounds a lot 'classier' in French.

Oh French right. Confused. Glass tower is better. Let's keep the French names in France.

I wonder how much privacy the people living in that building get when all those tourists with their binoculars stand on the Top of the Rock. That might not be a perfect place to live for famous celebrities. Maybe the facade will be reflective at daytime, but not after dusk.

Fantastic project, however, I am grateful I took a picture towards CP BEFORE this gets built.
