This is the same as putting lipstick on a pig. Concrete is concrete.

What is wrong with concrete. Who cares what a building looks like. I would rather a quality building that is constructed well and functions well as a building than a building that is just a facade. I do not know why this building curves in the front. What function does this serve.

I'm a fan of the overall feeling of this building. The curved glass front and rear works nicely especially given the height. The side walls aren't that imaginative, perhaps so,e more glass could have worked instead of concrete but I'm sure parts will get covered in the years to come.

what a surprise... You have a problem with the building because it isn't straight.
