Bardzo fajnie że budynek został doceniony. Tylko mam pytanie dlaczego docenia się po raz kolejny Architektów a cały świat zapomina że to konstruktorzy odwalają całą brudną robotę, nie wspominając o instalatorach którzy niejednokrotnie stają na głowie aby przeprowadzić tysiące metrów kabli i przewodów. Pozdrawiam Konstruktorów i gratuluje.
