There are obvious abstracted echoes of rusticated masonry pylons (without any vulgar flavour of PoMo); the handling and strong modelling of materials introduces a human measure into the big structure, as the Ancients did with their great buildings, The entrances are trabeated granite portals, made of huge almost primitive slabs with their long sides (the ones you go past and touch) left rough.
