The controversial design by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki for the exit to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence has been dropped, at least in its present form. Officially the project has been blocked by the Italys ministry for the national heritage because of the discovery of archaeological remains in Piazza Castellani where the Isozaki loggia was supposed to be built. However opposition to the project has been fierce ever since the design won an international competition in 2001. Many influential critics consider that the modern steel and polycarbon work would be out of keeping with the surrounding architecture. It is still just possible that an agreement can be found between the Japanese architect and the Italian authorities for a re-design of the loggia, to take into consideration the needs of the new finds.
