though you might different opinion about this type of addition – either the new building should totally stay away from the historical site, or should try to make a modern-meets-classic juxtaposition. it had been a constant (and can be endless) debate in design field, i know. and neither can i can give you my answer… but i like the choice of bold color and geometry with modest approach (the new addition is half-buried into landscape). it demonstrates a excellent balance between new and old, past and future.
only one thing i have to question (can’t help it when you’re a landscape designer): i wish the landscape in front of the building can be more coherent with the building. the light fixture seems a bit out of place…
just my two cents.
