A pair of mirrored glass cylinders seems to be holding this building together. Workers excavating its foundations unearthed an eighteenth-century sailing ship buried in the landfill, and when word got out, the builders agreed to allow the public to have a look at it, but only on a single Sunday when the workers had the day off and digging wouldn’t be interrupted. Part of the ship was rescued and sent to the Mariners’ Museum at Newport News, Virginia.
