Sometimes I like the look of the building in the process of construction more than the the same building when it is completed.
There can be more beauty in the inexpensive utilitarian bracing of the infill steel frame than in the purely aesthetic architectural embellishments or elaborate palette of finishing materials.
The two pictures above are the same building at different stages of construction. By comparing the images it becomes clear that the fenestration and the facade treatment is completely arbitrary. The building framework behind the cladding is completely homogenous and all the recesses and protrusions have no utilitarian function. Facade is a fake decoration.
For this reason I really liked the pavilion for the Lisbon Architecture Triennale.
