    This building is a joke. I AM the leading authority in architecture, interior design, and structural engineering. This is a pathetic use of space and where are all the exhibits. There are just a few and the focus was mainly on the building box concept not the exhibits, hence the word museum. Fact, this is just another building by another wealthy individual and interest groups that do not even know the first thing about architecture. They just believe that what they see and are told or shown by another Dallas firm thinking that what they have as a design concept is some sort of grandeur.
