Whoa! I'm sorry but that is an eyesore...Peixoto might be trying a little too hard. It is a very unpleasant sight. Someone please stop his this man from designing more buildings or the whole city will be a hypnotic's paradise.

Wow, I really like this, truly unique!!! These would clash with art deco or even 60's buildings. They really need to be built in 'new' cities then it would look awesome. That globe thing is hideous though, looks like godzilla's bowling ball!

Sort of like this building by ARM which is under construction in Melbourne:





The intriguing facade layout is generated by alternating these panels and a solar control glazed curtain wall. The panels, despite their appearance, are arranged in exactly parallel layers which produce a visual effect called the Munsterburg Illusion. This fascinating phenomenon was first described by Richard Gregory after he noticed the pattern of tiles on Cafe in Bristol, UK. The presence of the coloured horizontal line at each floor level is essential to the illusory effect.

I love it.It is very unique for there is nowhere is to go but just flat out literal about the geometry of buildings.Now he's now one of my fav's for going where no one else has gone!

Is that really a building? It looks so much like a computer rendering. I'm sorry I just can't believe it
