It looks really fresh. It reminds me a lot of the airport, and some of the newer buildings at Dal (edit: the NSP headquarters as well). This type of aesthetic could be interesting on the exterior of buildings as well.. think of King's Wharf or the Trillium with wooden panels instead of precast, or even just wooden insets used as a replacement for aluminum or plastic accent features.

that illustrates what I'm trying to get at. Imagine the curved section at the front of this house, but extended up for 20 storeys. I wonder if this is a popular style anywhere?
