DC, having been a long time admirere of Tadao's work, it's interesting to see what he creates when completely liberated from the material he is reknowned for... particularly the form. More stealth than Eric Owen Moss' 'Stealth' building, and outwardly sharing a kinship with Rems Porto project in the planar distorted box form... I like. Now, off to work on those drawings. You still in the competition, or have you packed in to spend more time on your blog? hope you're still in, so I can whup yo ass. Loser buys the other a round trip to the others island. (or at least beer for that trip) I've never been to Montserrat....
