That red doesn't really fit in there.

Actually, it looks okay.

The syncopated-grid pattern on the lower floors is just relentless, and since it’s probably going to be precast, the material won’t have any texture, either. This is something aA often gets wrong and it ought to be fixed.

This reality is extremely frustrating; aA does fairly consistently very good work, save for the experience at grade, which is most often a large, flat expanse of curtainwall. Lifeless, sterilizing, and uninteresting. I really wish they'd fix that as a firm, but the fact they keep repeating it over and over -- and for different clients -- indicates to me that they actually don't think it's a problem (which is itself a problem).
