Remember, Gaudi had many critics with "la pedrera".. Later it became a symbol of pride for Barcelona..!!
Arguments like this often arise whenever you criticise something. What it fail to take notice of though is all the times something was criticised and history have generally judged that critique to be right. While Gaudi certainly had its fair share of critics, so did the demolition of the Singer Building, so we can not assume that critics are automatically wrong just because some have been in the past (and I don't think everyone loves Gaudis buildings anyway).

Gehry is a degenerate. His only respectable projects are 8 Spruce Street and the Louis Vuitton Foundation.

All of his other projects lack of a defined shape, have no respect for surroundings or culture, they have no reason to be.

Quite a few of his works are disliked by the people who live near or work in them especially the Stata Center at M.I.T.

Yeah this building has received mixed responses from locals. Some like it and some hate it.

Either way, it's in a low profile location on the fringes of the UTS campus so I don't think most people have really had a chance to look at it.

Modern architecture has produced a lot of strange and original buildings. The problem is that it's possible to make something new and that look strange but beautiful, or to make buildings that look strange and ugly. Gaudý (mentioned before) was definitely in the former camp. Gehry, in the second one. All his buildings are strange, but I can't think of one built by him that I like (at least, considering the ones I've seen).
