It is my intention that the building be both sympathetic to its urban and historic context and clear in the development of a new identity for an embassy complex. The building makes careful connections to the proportions and geometries of classical Italian architecture, while establishing landmark elements which are harmonious parts of a new urban focus. Such connections are not abstract, but help to engage the building in a lively conversation with its historic context.
