...why do the parts of the ceiling tiles NO ONE WILL EVER SEE need to be as perfectly polished as the visible side? it's a stupid waste of time and money. sure it's their money to waste and they can do what they like, but they coulda built a really super nice normal building and spent the rest on a nice community park or established scholarships or something.
On the potentially negative side, isn't this just kind of a microcosm analogy for a lot of what appears to be going on in our lives right now? Or, on the potentially positive side, it's just a really big example of someone, or some entity, doing something to the nth degree--kind of like what George Massenburg did with the acoustics in Blackbird Studio C. I applaud what George did because he took a concept 'all the way to the end of the line' and now those who have worked there now know what that might mean--it's the only real way to find out. I personally hope to spend time in that room someday because I want to know for myself.
