How about a nice little anecdote to explain why you have nostalgic feelings for all these those generic office buildings? Did you enjoy a romantic weekend at the Embassy Suites? Does the 'Beefcarver' remind you of some crazy shit that went down during your misspent youth? Or do these buildings just remind you of that time you spammed the most beautiful buildings thread?

Actually its more a house of a 1000 orifices. Hey this was the tallest building in Asia when it was completed. And its a symbolic and historical scraper.

Nope, i don't have feelings for buildings. They can demolish everything, i won't let a tear for it. Buildings are just material, replaceable stuff.
