Sort of a "you will never learn how to swim until you jump into the water" situation, or was it that John was close to retirement and was not immersed into the design process? Thank you for you insight into this. These glimpses behind the curtain are why many of us are here.The monoliths, along with the entire entry redesign, were actually done by junior designers (interns) who had no experience in this field, which is why the massing is so wrong. John did not design the Leave a Legacy that was built. His name is out there only because he was the creative design lead overseeing the project and he admitted it went wrong. His initial concept looked nothing like what ended up there.
