Default Re: Eyesore of the Month

Again though, I don't hate the marriage of old and new if done well. Our Museum of Art just underwent a massive overhaul, which included building an Atrium onto the old facade of the building (This hadn't been the actual facade in a while though, can't remember exactly what was there before).



You may notice that the protruding bit is a little bit "off" color. This is because the sides are weathered for almost a hundred years, whereas the protruding bit is new and a different color because it's the original coloring of the marble, since they went back to the same quarry in Italy to cut new stone for the addition.
