Rendering/Reality is a Curbed feature that considers the often unsubtle differences between what a building looks like in its renderings, and what it looks like when they get around to building the thing. Nominees, please.
Man, Mura is brown. Not offensively so, but wow, that thing is brown. Bringing new housing to the Arts District, the 190-unit building (Mura is Japanese for "little village") at 629 E.

Meanwhile, how's the pool, residents?
