The train station looks good, but have nothing to do with the rest of the city arquithecture.

I prefer buidlings that can be gently integrated in the city without looking a virus in it.

That's something you could say about any modern, 'cool' building in an old, historic town.
Anyway, the enviroment of the Liège-Guillemins trainstation wil have a complete reconversion in the future.

Beautiful attention to detail....




Beautiful Lobby




Even the Subway stations incorporates the Art Deco architecture







I totally agree. I always loved this building, for me maybe the best art-deco skyscraper in the world, but not well known...

This building looks so weird that the municipality wanted to demolish it and build another building instead of it- but unfortunately, the architect (who obviously is slightly weird) lives in the other side of the street and doesn't let anyone to demolish his creation...

Probably not the coolest building in the world, but worth being mentioned:

The brain-shaped International Neuroscience Institute (INI) in Hannover, Germany.

Looks a bit like the Groninger Forum they're about to build in Groningen, the Netherlands. (Which is however NOT a cool building imho. Well, it's cool, but definately in the wrong place.)

Ontopic: The coolest building ever is offcourse:

Bottcherstrasse in Bremen gets my vote even though I'm not sure if it counts as a single building, but it is all connected.
