The Lamp is not ugly. It's just oriental. Another esthetics needs another point of view.
Look on all the giant golden/colorful Buddha monuments and temples, Bahai santuaries in S Asia and Far East and you will find it's definitely not ugly.
It makes Asia different from Europe. Even some of Dubai skyscrapers are very different from what we have seen in Europe/USA/Honkgong before. Different colours and fantastic shapes...
I think it's beautiful and I hope all the cultures deserve the right for localized architecture styles. I think the same was with Byzantine architecture and with Asian pagoda-style (seen in Europe probably as being wired multi-roof structure).

BTW, in my opinion it's not as controversial as mega-dildos in London and Barcelona

This could bring some more horrible towers. We could have an 234 meter Toilet for an Museum of Toilets or an 340 ft tower to honor The Beatles with and tower that looks like an BEATLE . Oh, the troubles this could bring

I think its innovative and might be beautiful in the appropriate surroundings.

Its not an area-affective regular skraper, but hey its a museum. I like themed buildings, well, i like themed areas in cities, especially parks etc.

But we'l see the outcome and the look IRL.

It is so not Chinese.
I thought the design fits better with the Arabic skylines.
