Architect is Graziani + Corazza:
I'm fine with the podium design there, although there are nearly no details fleshed out. I like the square frames: if the windows are inset from that, it creates some texture, whether the frames are precast or metal or another modern material. The top looks bog-standard glass and spandrel, but again, we're not getting any serous detail here yet.
Is the mechanical penthouse design a work in progress, or does it represent the very worst in mechanical penthouse architecture: a large and generically clad box which is unrelated to the rest of the building in terms of architecture?
