By looking at it, you don't need to be a genius or be an expert on construction or materials, it looks cheap and tacky...


About the pyramid and tower, compared to that thing in quality, materials and design much, much better taste IMO... Happy now?

Yes it looks cheap indeed and pyramid & tower look brilliant.

But at least, this building reflects originality not power of money

You can't compare to these...







Childish? You're the one pouting over nothing.

Take a pill, dude! You need to get back on your meds... immediately! You take things too seriously. It's not around you so what do you care? There's the thought police in forums like these. Now there's the building police. I thought China was the police state.

I hear a lot people call Vegas "tacky" because of these facimilies. I like Vegas. I don't take it seriously though, unlike your problem, just like I don't see that building as the end of the world like you do.

And in what way are the fake consumerised version of Eiffel tower and the pyramid considered in good taste and better quality than the statues. It's like saying "my house's plastered fake corinthian columns looks is better than your house's plastered fake doric columns"

what all of them reflects though, is a public misunderstood version of what is architecture today - postmodern architectural supermarket. It may look horrible, but it is an embodiment of what you are. Despise yourself if you like.
