From the outside, I attempted to get a better look inside, as this site has an incredible amount of windows. I could barely see into the building, despite this. I sat down on one of the many planters in front of the building and observed people leaving it, as I was there around 5:00pm. Clearly the work day was over for many of the employees, and most seemed to be in a rush to leave. The lobby didn’t have many people in it, only people passing through on their way out the door. Most were on their phones, barely any co-workers walking together. It seems to me that there are many different types of work happening inside the building other than the work of the DA’s Office. No one seemed to take any notice to the building itself, as its architecture isn’t very memorable or exciting.
