Has the building reached an age of respectability, putting it on preservationists’ radar, along with other iconic buildings of the modernist era (cf I.M Pei’s NYU buildings threatened by NYU’s expansion recently) ? Aren’t these works undertaken at the very moment where its lack of functionality is completely overwhelmed by its stature/iconicity and its place in the history of Architecture, making it virtually indestructible ?
