I love the stripes, it goes with the unconventional form. It really is as if imagination writ large.

Those two along with the Bird's Nest and Water Cube are 4 of the most unique and innovative structures built this decade in the world as far as I'm concerned.

I love this building. It can blend into the Beijing cityscape and completely own at other times. Amazing.

Am i the only one who is a bit disturbed by those disgracious Air conditioning holes on many parts of the facade ?

i think it breaks the harmony of the whole building...happily it can be seen only in some light/sunny conditions

I think harmony is not a proper word for this building.
Now regarding the AC,I don't think they look bad.They have to be located somewhere.

Are they planning to do anything to blend helipad to the general design of the building? It doesnt fit at all. However, I am also aware that it probably needs one...

This building is super cool. It's still unimaginable that a building like this could have gone up.
