It seems that you don't like it because you think you shouldn't like it (rationally). That explains al lot to me.

Besides that your analysis of the architect is wrong. Here the website for you: http://www.kcap.eu/

There is hard work gone into it by architects. I still don't like it very much.

You've got a point there, but the simplicity of its shape is one of the features I like about this tower.

I am not sure if the lines pattern would have worked on an oval or circular shaped tower. I doubt it.
it sure does on a flat surface, the more how closer you get.

By the way, the fact that I think you have bad taste is just another opinion as well, based on the fact that almost everyone in the city I know likes it a lot, also represented in the speed of selling the apartments.

Well I have exceptionally good taste... probably the best taste of anyone here, and I think its a great tower. Slim, elegant, playful, tasteful, works well on the skyline context. I like it very much. I cant tell how well it works close up, but usually architecture in this partof the world is miles ahead of everywhere else in terms of quality detailing.

I seriously love this tower.
The shape and architecture isn't even that great, but the color is beautifull and fits perfectly with the rest of the area.

Marin's pics show this very good.
Amazing pictures Marin, good job! I'm glad people like you take the time to make these pictures for people who don't live in Rotterdam to see.

It's the only red tower with a unique facade in the city
