Bakrie Tower, Jakarta
Although i really do loath chunky towers, this one is just definitely weird but in a good way, love the wavy effect and coloured glass

That building in Leeds is my university building. I'm in there everyday... it's really not that weird, the tower just has a sculptural fašade facing towards the city.

Architects are Fielden Clegg Bradley http://www.fcbstudios.com/projects.a...ss=2&proj=1326

In The Hague the construction of the 100 m tall Queen Julianasquare (OMA) started recently. It has a huge impact on the skyline, but i don't realy like this elephant.

Strange building indeed. Not my style, but it could keep turn out well in reality.

That building in Leeds is just gorgeous. I love it!
