interesting in that this predicts the appearance of 1960's skyscrapers that would have mechanical floors every 25 levels or so. Now they seem to have solved that problem and put everything on the roof or in the basement.

The big gold "building" is, of course, an air conditioner (air handler, condenser, heat unit).

Oh I realize it's an air conditioner. It's just very architectural.
Kudos on the new blog, by the way.

THIS is how I thought the future was going to look like!

I am so, so disappointed.
