    Keep in mind I have nothing against modern architecture. But it looks like a cheese grater. Funny someone mentions Seattle’s library. Here’s what a certain someone said about that in 2004. http://www.kunstler.com/eyesore_200406.html
    This is what happens when you have a stupid white building designed by stupid white people ( no offense, I am white ) who think they know whats best for a city. It is a perfect nest to attract birds, a good place to where mama can raise her chicks. Probably much more nurturing than whatever stale human activity goes on inside. I can only imagine how hard it will be to clean when birds crap in each crevice.

    The facade structure reminds me a bit of the Seattle Public Library by OMA. Otherwise I think this is a great design. That top floor with the lighting coming through the structure is really beautiful.
    This would be a great submission to the Holcim Awards US. http://on.fb.me/holcim-awards

    A staircase as prominent as the escalator might provide a pleasing option.
