base and the tower compliments that Cathedral. (Color)
It compliments the cathedral, but I find the base totally generic and uninspiring compared to the cathedral, a major architectural landmark. I wasn't expecting another cathedral here, but it would have been nice to invest in something more sophisticated than a basic pattern of vertical lines with some forgettable stone or precast cladding. They should have channelled Yamasaki instead of Mies for this one with his penchant for Gothic-inspired arches harmonized with contemporary architecture.
