Ohh...pretty nice. The "hanging gardens" seems to be very beautiful.
Great concept !

I love the trend of putting greenery on buildings/inside buildings transparent facades. It reflects the growing consciousness of environemental problems and more ecological thinking.

The skygardens make the buildings look nice, and ties them together pretty well.

Probably around USD 200-300K but these are pubkic housing, so are cheaper.

Um, what the bloody hell is this. I like the green but the facade just looks a mess.

I saw the rest of the design in the competition for this project, this is one of the worst. They choose this probably because of the low cost...........what a waste, such iconic project but with such a "****" design...

maybe its weird facade has a functional purpose. It would be forgivable then. But if its merely "architectural design" then i really hoped this was -20floors or something

on the contrary I like the layout of the blocks - they maximise the views and minimise the sense of claustrophobia you often see in such mass public housing projects, where the blocks are arranged in a tightly packed grid...some of the other design proposals looked like prisons.

Well I feel the facade is quite boring, the typical "box" designs. But then again, it aligns with the plot boundary, and yes is not that crammed, unlike WOHA's design (very crammed).

I like the layout and concept, but the facade could be improved. Then again it's public housing, so I don't expect high costing materials.
