The construction of a new building next to an existing building reveals the history of the place and how it’s evolving.

The use of existing material in the site allows people to visualize the iron-loading platform that once stood in this place.

    don’t confuse repeating design intent with personal criticism. in other words, evaluate the success of the project on your terms.
    just because the designer attempted some lofty goals in his/her piece doesn’t mean they were achieved.

  2. 3 – unless you visited the place in person it is better not to get into subjective comments about emotion but rather deduce what you can from studying the project and even the photograph itself; a rewording of your statement would turn it into a revelatory landscape statement: “the filtering of natural light through narrow gaps reveals the monolithic nature of the stone walls.”

    5 – good, simpler than you thought, right?
