haha yeah. I'm like...I have no idea why I like this or should I even like this. And I'm thinking...would I hate this if it wasn't for the red?!?!?!?!

I will say I do love the shifting in the red panels up the facade for sure! Its so childish and playful!!! Gutsy and very successful move

This one I took from April 10th.
Everybody has a right for their opinion of course. I think it's a very sexy and
attractive tower and anyone who sees it in real will be blown away

Only having an other oppinion doesn't automatically means that I have a bad taste. I don't like this thin red displaced cladding looking as if this buiding is captured by straws - because I have just "another" taste.

sure just for you

There is actually one thing on this tower, waht I like. -> It looks higher, than it is. But thats all I like...

What I don't like is the complete appereance, because

1970 was long ago. And obvios we have a 1970 box here. Yes, boxes are often really boring. But you can pimp boxes up with claddings or the material, which is used and it's possible to get a real interesting and beautiful building. The solution taken in this case, to pimp the style of this tower is unfortunate. The thin red dissorted lines looks as if they wedge the tower like the three killing climbing plants in the rainforest and addionally they are red (crying for attention?) like veins or like blood, so my second association is a bleeding tower.
And I compare it to other projects. Not in the word but in Rotterdam and there are some really great project on the running like the maastower, so the red apple looks even worse to me.
Always when I look at this pictures I see the architect on his desk, planning
"I good a damn box. Boxes are out. So I make a red cladding, red is good, red is color wich attracts attention (is begging for attention would be the better word) and to make it more interesting the cladding will be a bit dissorted - that's design, baby!"
Okay, I don't know him so it's unfair to think so. But unfortunatly I do.
A boring box, crying for attention by a wrong way. It makes the tower ugly and uninspired as well as looking like missing the target for me.

But, call it "bad taste". I don't care
