I agree these buildings are amazing - i just cant understand how any one agreed to those designs. I would love one or more in my city though.

In the last building for example, all those black stripes are glass.

I like the second building (the black-yellow one), but not the first. I may have liked it if it was in a theme-based neighbourhood. Like "geometrysquare" or something. But not just standing there in the city.

But i have to admit it is neverthless very cool and unique.

ya know, if there are so many of his buildings in a single city (Salvador) it means the people in the city DO LIKE THESE BUILDINGS.

I think those eyesores are disgusting and immature designs. That's just my opinion. I bet people get seizures from looking at those every day.

Hmmm... I think I like his buildings, but they cannot be mixed with classical ones, they will just not fit.
But the first building... I don't know. I have a headache when I look on it, so maybe it's not a good idea unless you are still inside

The effect in the first building is INCREDIBLE!
I wouldn't like to have a building like that in my city,but I have to admit it looks kinda cool to look at.

Those buildings look really cool, but i am glad there isn't anything like them in my city. Even though individually some of them are quite unique and cool looking, they really don't fit well into the skyline.
