The link provides an amusing case study of how avant gardism gives architects a bad name. The building was Eisenman's first.
This story recalls Mies and Dr. Farnsworth, who similarly was displeased with what the architect provided.

Of course, Eiseman is the antithesis of Mies's "less is more." With Eisenman, it's "more is better"--complexity for its own sake.
