The building meant for the OP is disgusting...grotesque even. It sticks out like a sore thumb

fernando peixoto's work looks New Wave. the problem is that it will stand for many generations and not age well.
and about Dubai... well they should build the international business center. that building really gives you a sense how they see architecture.
bigger is not always better.

buildings do not make the city, people in the community do.

I like these buildings. Some more than others. I think the last one is a little silly, because it seems to be strange for the sake of being strange. It'll hold your eye for a minute or two and then I think it might start to irritate me!
Still I admire the achitect and the local authorities for having the audacity to follow through with such a project. Hint hint Bristol....
