The building itself, as you can see, is quiet a beautiful piece of sculpture. But sadly the only things that it’s concerned with are its fine detailing and construction itself. The experience of the moving thru the building itself was very sterile and boring. The building in no way confronts its users in anyway and remains a silent backdrop, a sort of mundane elevator music. Probably it’s not so much a problem of this particular building but a general approach towards architecture that is adopted by SANAA.
