It's not a bad building. Fun materials and excellent spaces, but lousy (some call it "rough") detailing throughout the building detracts. The problem with the myriad of pathways through the building is that one can't always exit at the other end. Though the main doors are available, many of the secondary entrance/exits are blocked with signs "please use revolving door" and "fire exit only" that negate Koolhaus' extremely student-pedestrian-convenient floor plan. Too bad.
