True yeah. Projects failing. Okay. Really the way society is developed in the witness composition. Developed it was something that happens in the studio during the planning take. So I did perpetrate crimes our accounts stay. And I'm really deteriorated ingredient. In the months leading up to it was only an immediate the last few weeks right before I started dying. Was it looks yeah. The perpetrators. And you Gail model that I had bills and see what wet and an inkling of what it looks like say but it changed a lot yeah. Change so. So I went from making runs at about three inches high to making any time that the time it ends. Yeah. Let's talk a little bit to get. The cents. On the wall yeah. You're looking yeah. So yeah. Looking at his mind yeah and I didn't. Eating lunch lady the lady in need any heat you want. You know actually usually good. And he to witnesses and town and here to protect our.

It's really aren't exactly. For instance and united news and backtracked but just as it happens yeah posts here. You seen that all of the line concern me to see me. Other Canada and engineering and pre senate and the lions turn happier than others and yeah. My position my hands in the wrong. Oh yeah here at this very dark line. Things happen to be slowing more humbling moment when I would let the market down on the quality time and then there's little talk here. These are not. Department or didn't necessarily intentional but they are is. Just evidence a line and things starting. Usually they're clusters. Seeks. I am mechanics and throwing. Online yeah yeah. Just. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah get clash. Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah yeah. Yeah. And I think you're repeating a real incidents. Just how I think a little work under the grounds that it's yeah. During that. So why aren't just he's. About seventy million yeah. Dealings are a lot higher. I'm seasons lawless land and yeah good and it certainly. Yeah. A we're. Yeah. I yeah. It's yeah. Now 600 happens right. Yeah it's something you know I didn't hasn't exactly something sent neighborhoods if you witness news and all of this. Yeah 360 findings here's CNN's Evans it's nice things again. You create a second thinking about that as you're. Wheeling away for 600 pounds not at all now from I 88 exit is. Some morality of the project is part of it. Yeah. Same thinking yeah. Yeah.

That's precisely break quick prayer so it made it that much weren't. But it wasn't all just friends and it was mrs. This areas. The work in the eighth Lindsay you so much for joining yeah you heard your contribution. I think we almost made it all around us. 360. Degrees. And nearly got Q credence to her children joining us. Here's a fun. It has announced that correct yes. Very very good yeah a little bit about yeah and it's very humble hear and turned away what's been received so far when it you've been hearing. Oh well consciences and needed to go lapses before you started you visitors came up your end since we wanted to study. This is so that's in the public reaction. People are intense and taking photos following notes and drawings and sentenced him to beautiful things and it's nothing we were stopped. We were enchanted them they want an aviation Sargent Scott Speed. So and you know where the harshest critics because that's how she was lieutenant colonel in. And a no answers yeah since that that at least. I mean which came out. Ideas and drawings. And by the city's. Perfectly suited for the personal it was sought. And were the building itself since he needs in this structural. It's also some hundred of waves and visions and circles and spirals. Kids you think it means. And talk to me about how. Museum is trying to incorporate and use the architecture yeah. Honestly as I understand that there will be more than 300 there was enormous as the first learned since it. They just proselytizing construe this. And yeah. You know are wheeled. To continue on them on this I. So you have to you know and others who knew that the national audience.

And we whipping winds it's kingdom he. Germany's run in. It didn't cost of the book and it is. Just as different from this front that's indeed but it is. Just perfect teeth into the architecture and building could be independently it's strengthening and then it sort of highlights how to artists come to. You know throughout this I thank them totally different perspectives including that been practicing formula and hoops. The strike that was sort of pointless you know to give this deeply experienced. What are your silent and I talked a lot about the idea that this is temporary and count and should use. BR yeah how viewers interpreting it. I mean. I guess what you ask you about the fact that his 300 yeah. Yeah well you know we were always despite its. Content on this politics incidence. Juan Carlos Slim when it's beautiful as it is would. You know. Wishes it to sink in and remained but then we're also. Comes is that it's all the more so beautiful that it it can only Nazi yeah. Cases that's. There's something.
