Some buildings’ are a delight to behold: because they are beautiful to look at, to contemplat and admire all that goes in the their making. These beautiful buildings rise above the required utilitarian requirement of constructibility and profitability: such buildings therefor will always be the exception that proves the rule. Those bland, boring boxes that are the norm, they are inevitable, and acceptable; thank goodness for these ‘exceptional’ buildings. This one get my ‘good design’ seal of approval. Cheers to the designers, builders and engineers all…

From last night just as it started to rain. Sorry for the bad quality. Looks like most of the facade is up but definitely not complete.
