I don't really see how this qualify as "an example of progressive architecture"
well, it's beautiful for one. and it's extremely progressive compared to the crap that has become the norm out here in chicago.

but on a more serious note, i see stuff like this as great examples of this rebirth of modernism that we've seen since the start of the new century. it is something that the post-modern era help to bring about (howover painful the process was though). that is, the post-modern era help to break modernism out of its rut, and it is now in a period of rebirth. and i believe this is that.

i don't know. maybe this falls under the 'great buildings' part of the title!
