They might have waited for this announcement until they had more that a sole street view of the new architectural setting . . . ?

I have to admit, I don't see the beauty in this - I think it would have been a better project had they started with a new building- and from a sustainable standpoint, is the backup brick really exposed on all of the exterior walls? If so, it has an R value of less than 1. How did this get by the energy code?

I have long admired Ando's work, but this is out of left field. I hope it doesn't color his future palette.
