*sigh* Another Edmonton project with an amazing initial render with a (potentially) disappointing final product.@MCXavierL It's changed a lot from that render (forever known as "the silver mushrooms" by people involved in the project). Whether anyone thinks the newer design is better or worse will remain to be seen, but I think the form had to follow the function, which has changed a fair bit from when those renders were created.
Amen, @StopDropandLOL, amen!I think the reason why we liked the mushrooms so much was it's an "out there" piece of design, not often something you'd see in Edmonton. It was nice to see something different. If something had to change usage wise with the building that required a redesign then that's definitely understandable, but hopefully they can translate that into something unique into it instead of watering it down.
