the one of MVRDV is such a disappointing building from one of my favourite offices.

Great thread indeed.

^ Indeed, that Comic / Animation museum is some hideous kitschy crap.

By the by, many of the images sadly don't show up anymore. Imageshack isn't really the best hoster, speaking of long-time image hosting.

It starts on page 14 with this post and following pages where loads of red crosses appear:

Could you do something about that in any way?

the luxigon pictures are from their own website, which has been moved. I always download and upload the renderings before i post them, with one exception the luxigon pictures where i tried to save some time. I will try to get them back up when i get the time, but as always, its quite a lot of job.

Anyway, right now i am using Imageshack because they have the most reliable quality. If you notice poor quality of the earlier renderings you might notice they have been uploaded on Photobucket or Tinypic, both hosts are automatically reducing the image quality after a few months online (without the image size been reduced), so that some huge 20x20 pixel "pixels" appear.

Tinypic 1 week after upload vs. Imageshack 1 week after upload (no difference)


Tinypic 1 year after upload vs. Imageshack 1 year after upload


The two last ones are with increased light and contrast to reveal the difference.

You can't see it on poor screens but if you have a expensive eizo screen or similar like i do you should be able to see this easily. Photobucket has also the exact same behavior as Tinypic as well, even if you have a pro account as i used to have.

Wow, this sucks. I didn't know about that, thanks for clarifying. I still prefer tinypic to ImageShack, it's way faster and the images are always available.

Cool urban landscape.

Interesting layout. Could get a bit noisy though, with that street going directly trought that pedestian square.
