People who say 432 is ugly are just haters who can't appreciate anything beautiful in this life... such people can find the ugliness in everything they see.

IMO 432 fits perfect to the skyline and the surroundings.

So because it was inspired by an object created by well renowned 20th century architect/designer, in your head it just means that no thinking went into it? Got it!
Btw Hoffmann created a whole line of beautiful silver items with this grid pattern, people online got obsessed over the trashcan because it gives pretty outrageous headlines and also I guess that's the level...

Why is the progress on this tower so slow, the tower topped out 15 months ago and the tower is still complete, never mind open to the public.

The core T/O last year fall. According to the CTBUH 432 has been completed: http://skyscrapercenter.com/building...k-avenue/13227

Maybe the first tenants are already moving in, we just don't know about it.

Ah, the internet. Empowering the lowest common denominators to demand absolutism since...

Guess I can go tell my children, favorite musicians, etc. that I can't appreciate anything beautiful anymore.

I thought that was a promotional picture made before the building was constructed?
