A building excavation site is shown underway, beneath a brooding sky. The composition is dominated by the centered building, which surroundings lines all direct attention towards. Chimneys of the houses jut out sporadically, disrupting the clean angles of the roofs against the clouds. The unusual view of the exposed wall, formerly obscured by a neighboring building, furthers the visual force. Below, hunched figures in the middleground mill about their work.
