It may be refresh to use another colour than all those blue glass skyscraper, but why the heck did they chose orange glass? It looks like a relic from the 1970's. Which is such a pity...

I wish you could tint the glass blocks to diffferent colours... so far you can only use ice for blue reflective glass

You can't really have any other colour than blue and grey without someone complaining that it's too 70s looking...

Also, lots of 70s stuff is becoming popular again. I've seen shutter sunglasses, afros, leather jackets, some new brutalist buildings...

At least the letters make the screen look less massive.

But still...

I don't like the lettering - spoils the sleek design.

I love the shape of this but this building looks like it is from the 60's and ready to be demolished :S

Why is it that this building looks so cheap? Don´t get me wrong, at first I thought it had a great design. Right now it just looks extremely odd to me...

Probably the black venting...?

The word 'cheap' is used so loosely in terms of architecture. It's lost it's meaning...
