Metal-clad buildings

I'm grateful for every metal-clad residential building I see in Atlanta. Developer focus groups apparently show that traditional sells because that is mostly what is offered. A metal-clad building tells me the developer is willing to take more of a risk and embrace the modern. I like that. It should be done more. Adhering to styles that were created generations ago is boring. Traditional style is faux old and faux anything shows lack of imagination. The building pictured here is a condo complex on Memorial Drive in intown Atlanta. The second photo shows an unconventional window in one of the units. I think I see a bean grinder and a toaster in there.
