I've now had the pleasure of seeing 3 Williams/Tsien buildings in the past year (LeFrak Center in Brooklyn, Logan Center in Chicago, Asia Society in Hong Kong) and I will say they are among the most sensitive modernist architects working today. There are certainly recurring themes and strategies in their work, but it's always sensitive to context and the careful use and detailing of materials sets them apart from generic public buildings.

The LeFrak Center in particular is a good example for the Obama building, since it's also set in an Olmsted park.
