    Looks like an exhaust hood with make up air.
    Yes, I've seen that before and it doesn't mean I like it.

    Maybe they wanted the area cooler, so they are blowing the heat over to the neighbors side of the planet.

    I don't get it !

    I want to say that about once a week on some install that I see on calls.

    But sometimes I say, "What were they thinking?"
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
