It's the tallest and ugliest hospital in the world, in piss brown concrete

I'm not disagreeing with you, but if your piss is that colour then you could be needing that hospital.

Sydney Tower which has stunted the growth of taller buildings due to it presence height restrictions have been enforced. It needs to go.

I think he meant that concret turns into that colour when you piss on it. In other words, the hospital has the colour of concret full of piss.Well, I think that's what "the spliff fairy" meant....

How dare you suggest either of those buildings is ugly! especially the john hancock, that building is beautiful!

They had a fantastic 'gate' for many years, Best Feng shui any Australian city could have really, but they chose to build the tallest tower in perth in front of the existing tallest tower, YUCK. not to add about how bad the design actually is. Something round or something more square and in a different position would have been a great addition to the skyline. It doesn't need to be as extravagant as Jin Mao or Petronas but something more decent and in a different location would have added 'positively' to the skyline
