this building reminds me...

for example
one building in osaka reminds the console playstation 3
http://openbuildings.com/buildings/n...-profile-39335

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Parks Tower) Parks Tower (パークスタワー) is 30 floors, 149 meters high skyscraper located in the Namba Parks complex in the Namba district, Naniwa-ku, Osaka, Japan.[1] It was designed by Nikken Sekkei Ltd., and constructed by Takenaka Corporation in 2003. PS3 Tower In 2010 the Namba parks tower was dubbed the PS3 tower, after the gaming console Playstation 3 due to the resemblance between the two.

do you know another example that a building reminds anything else?

It's probably the global capital for its handful of ugly buildings.

Well, it's NOT supposed to be a literal recreation of an elephant. If u stretched your imagination a little to 'Cubist' boundaries, then you will see that it does resemble an elephant. But don't try too hard. It might bust your brain.

Now I know that there are considerable limits when it comes to architecture, but when you forget to add the fourth leg, then there is room for complaint.

Exactly my point. The face looks like a duck, but the rest of the body is, literally, "in the air."
