The Slogan

This building, considered by many to be the ugliest in Helsinki, has been condemned... sort of. That is, a part of it will be torn down and the rest will be thoroughly modernized. I haven't been too impressed by the pictures I've seen -- I'm not convinced that converting a pure example of decrepit 1970's concrete brutalism into a slightly passé glass box is such a huge improvement. And what about the little birds nesting in the cracks between those concrete blocks?
