Well a lot of people do find it a nice building, so not everybody has your opinion. It's something different yes, better then all those grey boxes you see in every big city. We could use some colour in my opinion.

I agree. ya know Baltimore reminds me of Rotterdam - both are harbor cities and have colorful and quirky skylines

HOW can you seriously say that?! Am i seeing something completely different when I look at this to you? Becasue what I see is an elegant tower with a beautiful sinuous, organic pattern of soaring verticality, great bold and tasteful colours that fits into its skyline context very well in proportion, in how its colours interact with the colours of its neighbours. I love this building, I think its really exciting without being so outrageous and 'of its time' that it will go out of date - I dont think it will.

True, just look at my 3rd picture to see how much color it adds to the skyline. The fact that the vertical lines are not straight is only an extra to its beauty.
