reconstruction (infrared)

(re)construction (infrared)

A few IR snapshots of the once and future Edith Green - Wendell Wyatt Federal Building, which is currently being transmogrified from a fugly 70s office block into a modern (and hopefully less fugly) 21st century green building, complete with eco-fabulous hanging gardens on the west face of the building.

I haven't seen any updates on this recently, but at one point not long ago they still weren't sure exactly how they were going to water and maintain these hanging gardens. I admit it would be entertaining if they botch that part, and the federal building ends up with a wall of dead brush or a vertical dandelion farm. I'm not actually rooting for that to occur; I'm just saying it would be entertaining.
