Fro7en, only the other day you criticised skyscrapers in London saying they weren't of a 'pristine' quality and compared London to Dubai.

You can't have it both ways, saying one thing on this thread, and then the opposite on other threads.

Just my opinion, beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyways.
It's not the dislike of the building that puzzled me, but your wish for it to be relocated in the less central CW, or the COL, where it might have a vague chance of being more 'absorbed'. The current location - for a building you don't like, couldn't be much more visible.

Considering many of London's great post-war skyscrapers were replaced by ridiculously-playful excuses of buildings all over the forums, this comment is bullshit.

Agreed, given that it would be comparatively anonymous in Canary Wharf.
