So are the page 1 renderings the real deal, or are we still waiting to see?

This is a slow motion demolition.

kingtut Apr 25, 2016 3:16 PM

It's more like deconstruction .

Yep. They're doing it this way because of the museum next door. Don't want to risk waking up any of the mummies, or turning them into dust! :)

You may have seen this before, but here's a DP article about the extensive precautions being taken during the current demolition and future construction next door:

^more modern and sterile. The original rendering on page 1 was organic. Cost savings? Less large glass panels, especially at the lobby...

Maybe cost savings because they added more floors?

If it is a change, I liked the original design much better.

The shape of the bldg is pretty much the same. Can't believe the $1.5 billion price tag only gets this design. This should be a trophy building in Penn's medical campus.:shrug:

It's a hospital, the 1.5 billion is more about what's going inside the building than the architecture. I do agree though that this is lackluster regardless of the price tag.

particularly with the beige color it looks like serious shit.

Knight Hospitaller May 3, 2016 4:10 AM

I agree. It stinks. It retains the shape of the original rendering, but that's it. I wouldn't want my name on it at this point, if I were m'Lord the Architect.
