For what? Calling for a ban is worse than anything I said. Anyway, this tower needs supporters, it is a sacred site as far as I am concerned.

I don't know if you are aware of this, but skyscrapers are supposed to fulfill a purpose, whether it is tenant space for large corporations or apartments for the rich. What's the point of having designs so crazy that half the space isn't even used? At least our buildings are practical. To be honest, a rectangular prism would be the most functional shape for a tower. Their purpose isn't to look really good yet fulfill no needs in its city's residential or commercial market. Our buildings today have great postmodern designs, so why are you still complaining? Do us all a favor, and don't come here next time you're having your period.

ok many of them are, going around whining about the design isnt going to make them better, then telling other people to "go cry a river" over their opinion is just as bad as them complaining.. and frankly you do deserve a ban, as far as im concerned your just as bad as those stupid spambots, i know i might be a pain in the ass or not contribute at all to this forum, but sheesh you really are a pain in the booty.

I realize you are new here, but talking about 2WTC isn't on topic at this thread. Try its seperate thread. Welcome to the forum, though!

If you didn't notice, I was actually defending the US towers against someone who came in and blasted them by showing how Chinese towers often have poor urban design. Stop being so sick and rude (talking about periods, etc), that is uncalled for and positively disgusting.

"dull designs" as aquablue calls it, also pleases people into minimalism, so it's a win win situation.

Supporting the US, were you? Give me a break.

Please direct me to a post where I behaved as a troll, because as I recall, I haven't bashed the building, the city, or anything related to this project.

Everyone on this thread is getting sick of your pessimistic attitude, especially Filipe and I. I for one don't like resorting to arguments, and rarely do, but I'm not some spineless fool who will stand for it.

Exactly, im just getting annoyed especially when i get smartass comments like this "wow, anger.. hahaha. Nice, at least I know now what nerve I have pinched. Good day sir", then people wonder why they get called trolls, and annoying... its like talking to a brick. i think a brick could hold up a better conversation then mr aquablue.

Yes, I do support the US, NYC actually. Check all my posts, they are all pro NYC or ideas for improvements for that city. I live in the USA.

When someone calls you a troll twice, there is no convincing them that you are not. Might as well give them what they expect to hear. Also, you were angry and foul mouthed, so why not?

Oh really? Because I seem to recall multiple times when you said that New York will be a hopeless city architecturally unless it builds anything other than futuristic postmodern towers and that you'll lose interest in it if it does otherwise.

I care very much about the city. I travel and I can see how it is falling behind in the areas that I care deeply about, namely innovation in design and transportation infrastructure. The fact that I get frustrated at the city shows how much I care about its future. You may chose not to believe that, but it is the truth. Thankfully, many proposals have my optimistic about the future of design in the city.
