My apologies! Took another look at the mockup pic, anyone else notice the panel's awkward/disjointed connection at the inside corners? Thinking this may be a result of to the tower's angled-facade; posing some design/fabrication challenges. Whatever the reason, one would think a more subtle pattern/texture for the terracotta would draw less attention to the issue.

Also, I wonder if KPF's decision to go with terracotta here was influenced at all by SHoP's widely celebrated terracotta design for 111 West 57th St (Steinway Tower). Just a thought...

Here's another photo, this one comes by way of New York Yimby.
