Lovely to see the building after a week away. Concrete steps have been poured for the main entrance. Work's been done on the green roof area. The air ducts on the main floor where Kaneem Smith's piece will be installed look great. Carpet is being laid on parts of the first floor. The recycled wood timbers above the racetrack are all installed and are quite good looking. Each group of timbers spells out a word. Should one lay on the floor and look up - and if one could read bar code - then the ceiling would speak to you. Good things are happening.
The AIA Gala is this Saturday evening. 700 people will be partying in the lobby. I can see there is plenty of work still to be done to make it a safe and elegant party place. I am sure they'll make it happen.
