The eastern facade with scarce fenestration
The north facadeHere, Gehry responds to the urban context with the kind of repeated fenestration characteristic of nineteenth century Parisian buildings. The post-modern play is seen in the deeply recessed windows, the apparent canted wall (as if this were a masonry building), and the stone-defying overhang at the base. See the Monadnock Building for an example of a real masonry building with a wider base.
