In the process of building, projects materially metamorphose. A timber frame house begets a plywood house which in turn begets a rubber membrane house which will beget a weatherboard house… sometimes buildings look better in an earlier part of the process than the finished product. Libeskind’s Jewish Museum in Berlin comes to mind: the concrete structure arguably looked more sombre and befitting of its programme than the shiny finished article… we hope this is not the case here!
