I wasn't sure how I felt about this design when I first saw it last night, but the more I think on it the more I like it. Honestly I think this just continues Studio Gang's recent trend of wandering more and more into the territory of brutalism. I almost hope that this building isn't entirely clad in glass, but rather had prominent concrete components. The massing of this project (and her recent U of C dorms) are very reminiscent of the monumentalist themes of brutalism. Screw the green washing, let's call a spade a spade, Gang's monolithic Aqua was a preview of a new wave of brutualism out of her, not some flowy green bullshit.
I can already tell this is going to be a good building because of the angsty, mixed, response to this design so far. It is evoking strong feelings from people which indicates that it is radical, unexpected, and, most importantly, original.
