Comment of the Day

"This will be an interesting experiment. I'm not sure it's going to be good, because the etched bricks may just be too odd and aluminum is not a metal that ages in a pleasant way (unlike metals closer to natural materials - the old iron loft buildings have a patina that just gets better and better over time) -- but it will be interesting to see. At the Jewish Museum on Fifth Avenue, Roche & Dinkeloo made a similar addition, without the PoMo switch from masonry to aluminum, and it's one of the best recent additions in NYC."
