I love a lot of the designs currently pro and u/c. This one is, in my humble opinion, very ugly.

Interesting comments - "Its Ugly" and "its beautiful" responses alternate almost in perfect sequence!!
I'd be curious to see how this would look in the night render!

For now -folks in Mumbai forums and I'll be tracking when this thing moves to U/C !!

The only time I think this would look ok is at night. It will give old Mumbai a futuristic look.

This is not 'inspired by a water droplet dropping into a pool of water', it's literally a vertical bathtub, with a 4 story glass droplet in the middle...very subtle

In their website (James Cybertecture), it still says proposed as a "concept". Don't know if it is approved or not.

I hope to see some movement on this one in the future, as much as some people hate it, it's still one of my favourites.

Never saw something like this before. I don't think it's ugly, if it will be exactly like the render of course +1 for the pool.
