Why do you say that? All the walls will be bright white and I'm sure there will be strong lighting. I don't understand why people make such premature judgements on this forum.

Because that's what I think, we'll see when it's done.

Not many people seem to understand that, unfortunately.

Depends on the decrotive styling. Lobbies of Art Deco buildings are absolutely beautiful and greatly decorated. Personally, I much prefer Art Deco over modern architecture, although I like both. Art Deco, however, is supreme.

The antenna? Oh, you mean the giant hookah. jk It seriously looks like a giant hookah, though. I think it's awesome. This is why I refer to the spire as the hookah.

It's not about endless decorations, but the lack of elements that would give it some kind of character. Core walls are pretty good looking with stone paneling, but the outside walls look like they're just covered in stucco - apart from the intrusions they have nothing to make them interesting. Even a simple horizontal line or an extra vertical one would make it nicer.
Oh, and those paintings look a bit out of place. It seems too much like a modern museum.

Some people are too quick to judge modern architecture.

Winds were supposed to be lighter today. Any progress on the cladding at the top?
