    By "see it any other way," I didn't mean the way GS would have it designed, but literally.

    99% will only see the building from the outside, and the skin doesn't lend itself to showcasing exposed beams.

    That is true of most buildings though. The important people are the ones who use the building. You cant design for the people who never go inside.

    If they could have designed it with the diagonal bracing on the exterior, it would at least have one redeeming quality for those of us looking at it from the outside.

    I'm not sure raw exposed beams would have worked inside GS either.

    It works at NY Times, but what about Hearst. The lobby structure is clad in SS.

    My problem with the interior, from what I can see, is that everything seems to be painted green, giving the facade a greenish tint.

    The combination of mist and smog made a surreal sunset yesterday.

    This thing is totally unremarkable in person and the best thing I can say about it is that it doesn't detract too much from the WFC. Goldman looks better from the air, but it still can't compare with their tower in Jersey City.

    That being said, they dropped off at least three truck loads of windows over the weekend. Hopefully they'll fill up some of the holes or finish the crown.

    That group really needs 1WTC to break up the mass. From the north, south & SE the GS isn't so bad. But it really is a table topping skyline killer from the west.
