This thing looks like it might actually happen. Related Cos must be happy
I read that article also, but it sounds like a lot of that money is going to other research facilities in the UI system and not necessarily the DPI.

Either way, given the money involved here I am expecting a top-flight architect and an award-worthy design. Too much to hope for Richard Rogers or SHoP? Maybe Norman Foster as a consolation prize after his excellent O’Hare design was not chosen?
