Denmark is generally pretty tasteful, but there are exceptions:

Wow! Why would you do that? I really can't see the logic behind it. Why do you want to turn a beautifull chateau, which isn't in decay, into this horrible thing that looks like it's from another planet.

^ actually what you see there as a "beautiful chateau" is just a post-war pastiche with close to no intrinsic value. The original 16th century palace was destroyed before. Anyway, the reconversion was done by adding the latest layer over the stone walls, so it can be reverted back to the chateau pastiche at any time.

I don't care if it's a ''post-war pastiche with close to no intrinsic value'' and that it ''can be reverted back to the chateau pastiche at any time''.
It's ugly! And even more ugly when you compare it with the previous building!

^ But that's exactly what I was implying. The pastiche is quite ugly. "Pastiche" and "no intrinsic value" was supposed to mean exactly that. They're not positive comments .

The new wrap however I like very much.

It's not worthy of this thread, it's just poor people trying to do what they can with whatever resources they have. And tbh they did a great job, it's not easy figuring out a way to build and impromptu building like this on a slope and not having it fall down.
