Is there a possibility with our non climate change climate change to up those temperatures? We had several days above 82 degrees this summer.

Not that I'd notice, because I'm told that climate change doesn't exist.

They began dismantling the tower crane today however with the high winds the progress has halted. 1st Ave is still closed between Virginia and Stewart but there are no workers in the mobile cranes or equipment. Hopefully the wind slows or they will have to wait until next weekend. No way SDOT allows them to leave this closed thru Monday. That's construction for you!

This building looks better than it photographs. I wish I could put my finger on why that is.

Question: When they build these buildings with the "boxes" turned so they look like they were stacked carelessly, is that part of what is called the Deconstructionist style?

The following is from Wiki, so the value is what you ascribe to it, but here:

Quote:
Deconstructivism is a development of postmodern architecture that began in the late 1950s. It is influenced by the theory of "Deconstruction", which is a form of semiotic analysis. It is characterized by fragmentation, an interest in manipulating a structure's surface, skin, non-rectilinear shapes which appear to distort and dislocate elements of architecture, such as structure and envelope. The finished visual appearance of buildings that exhibit deconstructivist "styles" is characterized by unpredictability and controlled chaos.
So my vote would be 'yes'. Unbeknownst to me, I live my life in deconstructionist style. Who knew?

Thanks CH, I thought it would be but I also have read where it departs from fixed geometric shapes but I guess that does not mean it has to be exclusive to that but more that sense of controlled chaos. I suppose the EMP would also fall into this category.

My question would be how they weather protect those little slab triangles so that moisture doesn't make its way into the building. A tiny bit of roofing?

The water will flow off the backs of the pigeons that will permanently be sitting there.

My current favorite new building in Seattle. I remember seeing renderings for it before the crash and am so excited now walking by it almost complete. In a city awash in banal design it it refreshing to see something so striking.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before - if it was, I didn't know what a Thompson Hotel was!! Makes the W Hotels look a little plain.

This is what one is and we join a short list world-wide (about ten) having this gem!!! Just got back from Playa del Carmen. Here's theirs:

scroll throw Favorite Guest Photos. I can attest to the fabulous rooftop pool/bar/restaurant area.
