    this is a stunning piece, and striking in the landscape. I am always drawn to designs that include glass, steel and wood. However, as beautiful as it is (including its great use of passive strategies), I cannot get past the fact that it is all glass….in the winter. No amount of solar gain will make up for the heating load on an all glass building during a cold winter, especially with high winds across a field. I am interested in how it performs in the winter…I am skeptical but totally willing to eat my words :)
