I don't get how just a rendering of a crystal tower that basically under the decoration is a international style building could represent the end of modernism.

This.

The basic structure is rational and modern. Hanging prefab stylistic 'artefacts' off that frame scarcely represents a reordering of the architectural vernacular. But it is wildly fantastic and over the top!

That's what it's trying to say: Look, you can have a regular building composition and add individual details on top for almost the same price.

I agree this would have looked better on a stone-clad tower or some more refined tower shape. But the point it also makes is the argument about pricing. As said, there should be no excuses for lazy architects with no effort for details anymore. Those times of endless exchangeable bland facades are finally over.

If you got big floorplates and don't want it to be dark in there, feeling like in a cave, you need big windows to get the light in.

There's a thin line between "grand design" and "great mess". I'm not quite sure which side this building is on. It's original, that much should at least be said. But I can imagine it being a nightmare to maintain. Try cleaning that facade. Or removing birds' nests. There would be too many dripping points to count (creating spots of miscolouration), and don't even get me started on icicles.

This render is an interesting proof of concept, but I'd like to see the technique tried out in real life before being applied to a huge skyscraper.

Had this been proposed in the 1920s they would have begged or Killed for the Blueprints.

Yeah it is kinda messy some places but its a very good interpretation of Art deco especially and many other styles. it is kinda messy and stuff but its all symmetrical at least.

i thought what the heck at first too but it grew quickly on me. although the top should be a spire i think. if they spent as much money on this as they did back in the 1920s on New York skyscrapers it could become reality. But to look like the renders and be able too keep looking like that. U would need too use Marble and Gold plated Metal or something very similar.

The Aon Centre in Chicago actually has a complete marble facade and it cost 80$ million to completely reclad in 1992

Just stumbled upon this through another article. WOW. Unbelievable!

In general there is a little bit too much going on for my taste. I would at least cut the outgoing sky lobby.

But I absolutely love the color scheme. The shimmery glas with the white marble (?!) and the gold elements looks just fantastic. Would be great if something "like" this would be made in the near future.

A new ornate architectural style based on the principles of classical architecture but inspired by modern art styles (like steampunk but less gimmicky) could be facilitated by this technology, but as this building looks it's really just a lazy, incredibly busy attempt at wrapping tons of sculptures around a modern glass skyscraper. Need to use technology like this but in better ways.

The key point is big windows, not everything a window other than the tacked on sculptures. Gothic buildings had massive windows; modern architecture's clearly not the only style that can achieve it.

Cacophonous.

I mean, I like the mix of concrete and glass. I admire the revival of ornamentation and even ostentatiousness of it. But this isn't a designed building, it is just a hodgepodge of decorative elements thrown onto a box. And there isn't even beauty in the chaoticness of it. Mix too many colors together and all you get is an ugly gray.

I kinda forgot about this tower, but now that I rediscovered it, I am even more pissed that it won't be built.

Maybe.

But what it achieves is, that the discussion about architectural ornamentation is back.
It's missed by a large portion of people in today's architecture, and now it's very affordable again.
