Giants Causeway - the New Visitor Centre

I'm not impressed by this latest addition to the Giant's Causeway World Heritage Site; there might well have been objections had such a structure been erected elsewhere in the WHS 4km protected zone.

I've referred to the new building elsewhere as 'the latest volcanic eruption at the Giants Causeway, Co Antrim; apparently it's an expression of intelligent design. Visitors will be rather more impressed by the natural form'.

How will the conifer screening fare in such a windy maritime setting? Local trees and bushes are often growing horizontally away from the prevailing wind.
