The Finger Building Gets Dressed

After years of (rightfully) fighting against the context-busting Finger Building, it will be interesting to see what the (chopped off) finished product looks like. Soon, perhaps – the building is getting its skin on. And that skin is a terra-cotta rain screen, from the looks of it, though its not clear what happens between the panels.

And here’s the big question – will the building look like a chopped down tower, or did the architect revise the design to account for the lower height? (Or, will the owner just leave a bunch of I-beams poking through the roof, taunting the neighborhood with the possibilities of future growth…)
