It's funny but I took a wrong turn down there last weekend and saw the same thing.

Gehry prefers unfinished buildings to finished ones but I agree this building although destroyed is really stunning. Your last picture is the view that really caught my eye as well.

i think that any building which you know is soon to be torn down suddenly becomes much more interesting. and when it has been effected by something like a fire, it becomes even more temporary and intriguing. it's the final days of a time and place that will soon be altered. you want to suck it in, remember what it looks and feels like, because soon there will be an entirely new structure built in it's place, with no record of the past. it is good to take a moment and commit things to memory.
