Sitting across the Danube River, CET (Central European Time), the project's name, is a remarkable structure built to establish a visual connection between the physically separated sides of buda and pest.  The lines and curving nature of the structure play well into the name and meaning of 'Cet,' the Hungarian word for whale.  The 19th century warehouse outer structures almost look as though they are holding the bulbous 'cet' structure in place.  The two structures come together to form some of the most beautiful forms of architecture, where old meets new.  A+
