One aesthetic criticism. On the black spandrels, the joints match the color of the of the glass; it would have been nice if the same were true of the almost white ones. The aluminum/metallic colored joints make the almost-white units look very crate-like industrial -- detracting from what otherwise could have been a commendable mix with positive and negative spaces... maybe next time.

What a dichotomy -- materials look good from a distance but look like cra (bapples) up close. The overall form is still ho-hum.

If it means the rent they charge will be lower, I am ok with its design and materials. Not everything has to be top notch and unaffordable, but if they do charge high rent then yes it is garbage.
