It' okay not to like a building... very rare you'll find anyone in total agreement about something but it does give context and relevance to also say just why it doesn't appeal. But I do agree people should feel free to even hate on a building the vast majority may like or love. I can equally think the reason is silly or ignorant but things are often a matter of perspective, and it's good to sometimes have stuff posted that challenges and doesn't follow the crowd. That's my take and now I'm moving on along with Londonium Lex and excitedly anticipating with otie has to update Nordstrom!

Well, to be fair, he/she just expresed his insatisfaction with the design of the skyscraper, there is nothing wrong with that, he/she didn't use inapropriate words and didn't offend anyone.

The polemic began when somebody critiziced his critic. I think he/she doesn't speak english very well, so can't elaborate more, and anyway, we read all the time mesagges that barely say "this building is amazing" or "beautiful" or "awesome" or whatever, and nobody says them anything.

I also do not like the final design. I think it lacks imagination and the elegance the other currently ongoing constructions have, such as Steinway or TV.

The thread rule should be this:

If you don't like the design you have to display YOUR design.

Then we can all S*%T on that......

People amaze me, a shiny blue 1775 foot building goes up in NYC and somehow people find a reason to be upset.

Height is not everything. Some people just simply don't like the design.

You're absolutely right, but I still think it's important to break new height barriers as well as design ones, and the fact that this will be a new tallest to the roof (and maybe pinnacle) in the US/hemisphere is big and people should appreciate that from an innovation/engineering appreciation standpoint.

i meant better resolution
i can't see much on the "room blue print"

i was curious how does it compare to the 432 ave building

bigger smaller etc..

i like it more because of glass wall not 3x3 windows but i suspect it's not so spacious as 432 which is about 750m2 per level

Is anyone else absolutely in love with the spire? I think it's so cool and works well with the building.

^I think it works well with the building but I would say that people are most happy that it's a really substantial spire and not just a stick.
