Imagine walking in beautiful and historic Hyde Park near the Shore, and then stumbling upon the above structure–mettle and glass hung on steel frame building. The building was surrounded by more traditional brick buildings (for the most part). I was arrested by the contrast. I stopped to look at this building and one person who was behind me walked past but looked at me strangely. I said, “I am looking at the architecture.” This person replied, “it is ugly isn’t it?”

That about sums up not only failure to fit, but the the modern unconcern with beauty.
