I think it is that his designs fail when placed in a dense urban context. VIA 57 is a very long site on "the road less traveled." 76 West 11th is a very large and tall building compared with a 10 story context. When placed next to massive skyscrapers, like the Frankfurt example or 2 WTC, he is trying to do what he can't. Just like with Frank Lloyd Wright's obsession with open prairies, Bjarke has an obsession with mountains and buildings that can be read as a simple diagram from the outside. Place Omniturm dominating a sea of 10 story buildings and it would be a masterpiece. The same with 2 WTC in a sea of 20-30 story buildings. When surrounded by huge towers, the diagrammatic part of the design falls apart. One57 suffered from the same thing.

Oh you're new here. That concept was proposed for Shenzhen before, not Dubai.

The Hadid project at the highline totally evokes that HR Giger feeling, known from the sets of "Alien" movies.

And lol @The Big Bend, perfectly ridiculing that fugly 432 Park Ave stinky finger, haha!
