"In Japan, red is the color of the sun, as witness the red disk in the center of the national flag.

The Worcester Telegraph quotes WAM director Matthias Waschek regarding our new bridge project there: "wHY's design for our new access bridge will allow everyone — including those who, for any number of reasons, are unable to use steps — to enter the museum through our front door, making it an important gesture of hospitality to our visitors. At the same time, we are also committed to preserving the integrity of our historic façade, which wHY has accomplished beautifully," Waschek said.

The sandblasted bow-truss roof was so clean it made the whole place look clean enough to eat off of.
