    Just back from the opening event today – lovely project, you need to be in it to really appreciate some of the features

    I surprised by the sensitivity of the project, especially the restrained approach given the rest of the office’s recent work. This doesn’t seem like OMA ‘lite’ however, since the building really does take a position as regards the program – it kind of makes me think of Murakami’s hospital in Norwegian Wood…not as an image, but as an idea about mental health.
