Abstract
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.
