Weird & wacky colour schemes

Lets see some examples of innovative or bizarre uses of bright or unusual colour conbinations in skyscrapers, whether they be tacky pieces of crap that should burn in the fiery depths of hell or vibrant architectural gems that think outiside that square...I guess it's a matter of opinion. Here's a couple to start off with.

I find the Neeman Towers in Tel Aviv to give a good perspective when it comes to housing projects.

While it looks like any other cladded skyscraper during the day, Hong Kong's The Centre has a light show along its exterior every night featuring an assortment of colours :

First World Hotel, Genting - Entertainment City, Genting Highlands, Malaysia

That picture featuring a Malaysian hotel shows the hotel by he name: First World Hotel.

I hate every aspect of it:
1.) Its too tacky. It is irresponsibly an eye-sore with all those stuid ******' colors.
2.) Its name is too unoriginal and sounds descriminatory "First World". I mean, what the **** were the architects and the owner thinking in making the world's largest hotel (after it completes its twin building it will have a total of 6,000 rooms).

Yeah, thats just my opinion. Sorry if anyone was offended.
