An incredibly versatile design (i take this to be a fictional building), executed to amazing standards modelling-wise.But i think it's biggest merit lies behind what can be immediately seen, and precisely in the way it tackles on the issue of designing a generic building.

Some building types and building styles are widespread, and instantly recognizable as originating from a common matrix.But slight variations in regional architecture can play a role (and perhaps did more so in the past) at rendering them unique, while being substantially identical.

I've seen that happening in Europe, and i've seen that happening in America, to an extent.

The challenge is - how to incorporate "regional" touches while avoid to pigeonhole a design into a fairly restrictive context? And/or, how to design a generic building while retaining enough hints of a "local" interpretation of it's paradigm, hints that would contribute substantially at enabling such design to be perceived as graceful, interesting and authentic?

The design offered there strikes a perfect balance, offering several different suggestions, while miraculously managing to remain true to them all.

A relatively insular massing reminds me about mid sized midwestern cities.Or perhaps about several (now) large cities within sunbelt and pacific rim, where buildings like the one hereby depicted often represented their very first foray into acquiring a "big city" character.And yet something in it's architectural detailing reminds me of eastern seaboard cities, NYC perhaps, but several other places as well.

From shore to shore, from lakes to gulf it would find a way to belong anywhere, and enables any user to make It make it whatever he/she wants it to be.

When designing a generic building, that achievement ought to be considered absolute perfection.
