Operation Overkill

The New York Times: “…looms heroically . . . a sculptural object in stunning isolation . . . Viewed through new buildings, the structure could wield the force of a wonderful surprise.”

The Boston Globe: “. . . the most interesting, most inventive building . . . since the Hancock Tower . . . at night, the glass will glow, becoming a lantern floating in the air above the harbor . . .”

Architecture Review: “the building reflects the architects' interest in exploring seemingly every intersection new museums have to steer through these days. That means not only combining public with private and active with contemplative space but also bringing together . . . the sacred and the profane.”

That’s what they’re all talking about. That building up there. More to come.
