It's atrocious. Looks like a roller coaster hit by a tornado. I hope it's only temporary.

Ahah this is the best definition i've ever heard of this tower!

I like Anish Kapoor's works but this one it's quite difficult to accept.
However I found a cool video of the horrid tower being built!

Orbit Tower i like these videos at super speed!

Meanwhile, they are are still building new observation towers at the olympic site in Beijing

Edit: removed pictures and made a link so the pictures don't pollute the thread.

It's certainly unique. I haven't made my mind up as to whether I like or hate it yet though.

Well, it IS an observation tower, on a olympic site, so I thought it's at least a little relevant. But I will remove the pictures then and make it a link so the photo's don't pollute this thread.

Yes, of course... But I'm 100% sure I'm not the only one thinking that way!

I bet the vast majority think like me. But, yes, is just a matter of opinion.

I think London deserves something more. It may be iconic, ok, but in a horrendous way, too weirdo!

In my own opinion, bad art is worse than absence of art.

I like it. I see as neither ugly or embarrassing.
