At first glance, I though that was the insulation, not the brick. Its different, like it.

Is that a feature or a bug?
No way that yellow brick was designed being out of plumb so randomly like that. When texture is desired it is done way more intentionally. This is looking like an apprentice got this assignment.

Well they have to start the new folks somewhere. What better place than *checks notes* uh, a prominent location in a major city with a strong masonry tradition?

Finally got around to looking at this and it is indeed god-awful workmanship.

I like it. They did a good job of making it look like a retro fit imo, since they werent able to save the old structure. I dont think Ive ever seen prefab brick look like this before.
