    The Eagle building makes more sense to me as the 'interior" face of the rooms of each street, almost like one has split a Pomegranate open and turned it inside to out. Quite a different thing to Jim Stirling's work that was more concerned with the object.

    The cleverest aspect of the design is doing the continuity part required for an infill, whilst making it special and of its time. This used to be something architects did with ease, but like hand drawing is disappearing. Perhaps the two are connected, as taking the time to make hand drawings of one's own designs surely makes them more considered and particular.
