20 years later, once these are built, we will look back in disgust and embarrassingly ask ourselves, "Why the **** did we build this monstrocity?"

This looks awesome. When does construction begin? No but seriously, I would love for this to get built. But what are they? Apartment blocks?

I love it...and I agree, brutalism evolved into futuristic blocks but it still has that powerful message.

I love it and very original .. if the masses say that they love it - scrap it, if they say that they hate it then it is a keeper

They're pretty cool looking. I think it would be better as an office component vs. a residential, primarily because those fins will block potential views and what's the point of living up high when you have obstructive views, when in an office environment, you bring in light without the distraction of views.

I like the design. Though the blatant attempt to look futuristic might age very fast. In 20 years it might have the charme of an old Buck Rogers flick.

I like it, but it might not be too functional. It might be better off as a sculpture than a "mass human storage device".
