This is what happens when an incapable design and construction team tries to build an angular and "patchwork" building. Inevitably, no one knows how to detail areas where materials and faces adjoin one another.

sbs's very first write-in!
battery park, detroit shoreway, cleveland ohio 44102
note the fine attention to detail regarding the battens and their relationship to the fenestration.
also of interest are the sun screens (these face north and the only sun that will hit this facade is late in the summer and it will be low on the horizon) and the entry canopy which provides no protection.
use what you like
I like it all.
So, in summation, exterior material was installed or designed with no regard to what was happening to the exterior AND useless architectural details which pose as useful details.
I think the green beveled batten picture is my favorite.
