Is cricket as popular in Sri Lanka as it is in the rest of South Asia?

Yep, this building is supposed to remember the 1996 crikcet world cup in which Sri Lanka won.
Sri Lanka has also got into the finals several times as well.

This won't grow on me.
If it were more slender and consistent I'd probably like it but now it's too fat and the massing changes. Ruins a good idea.

It will never get a place in my top 10 list but i like it. It's really unique and could be an "iconic" landmark for Colombo.

That's certainly an interesting design.

Can anyone from Sri Lanka comment on how culturally appropriate it is? Like does it reflect the shape of ... I dunno, anything from the island?

My first question is what will the core look like? Those four cylinders will have to be supported through the entire structure, so how much actual floor space will there be in the middle section? I like the geodesic dome though. Not enough of those in major developments.

Its shape if you look closer the shape is like four bats with a ball on top.
The dome is the ball
The name 96 refers to the 1996 Cricket world in which SL won
