Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

People hate spandrel glass.  People hate EIFS.  People hate red brick.  People hate concrete.  People hate blue-tinted glass.

It really is hard to keep everyone happy! Smile

Wow, I don't hate spandrel. Just don't over use it, just like everything else. In moderate amounts is nice, in excess it's a problem.

OK, fair enough!

The podium looks a bit off compared to the rest of the building, but even with that personal opinion, it's a nice project.
