I do appreciate the benefit of your discretion, however misplaced it may be.

I sort of remember this image... Caption This, 25 November 2011: I can’t get the images to display on my phone, can somebody have a look and see if one of my wiseacre comments included the subject image? Doesn’t really matter, just checkin’ the erosion level of my gin addled memory!

It's okay, the whole building is made out of Styrofoam anyway. A keyhole saw can make you an opening in just a couple minutes.

The architect was known for his attempts to "counterpoint the surrealism of the underlying metaphor." Other architects observing his work were often heard to comment, "WTF".
