I think most people should realize that what they see is not the actual rendering. Its just a drawing or a model and they never have the detail of the actual building.

The real thing will look amazing. I love the colors. So Prague like, so happy.

I am only not happy about the fact that it will be built in 2011 and not sooner. The building will only be built along with the tunnels under smichov and underground parking lot of letna plain!

How can you describe the building as "so Prague"? I don't remember ever seeing any other buildings in those colors in Prague.

Now, now. Only because we've been KIND to that project calling it hideous and absurd, it doesn't give you reason to call "retrograde" people who still have some sense of taste left. Please respect others' opinion.

I am refering to shiny colors. Prague and rest of Czech Republic has its buildings painted in bright colors. People are not afraid to use pink, bright yellow, light blue and even violet on their houses. I like that a lot, its happy, its warm, when you walk around with blue sky or even when its dark, it gives off a nice feeling, rather then having everything a dark red brick, white, or gray cladding and even glass buildings which awoke cold feeling.

Sorry Guys, but I don't like it...
It looks like some green jelly monster from outer space like the ones you can see in Z category action movies from 70s or 80s...

"Oh shit and its moving towards the city!!!!"

I respect you and you respect me saying my opinion: you are retrograde.

Kokpit, I didn't ask you your opinion on me, and limit yourself to judging buildings, not people. The vast majority of the forumers here said this project is a monstrosity, but they did not start bashing the minority of people - among which is you - that, on the contrary, appreciate it. Why is that? Because taste is a subjective thing, and there are progressive people around here who know it. And this is a blessing for you since you said things like "it [that thing] is architecture of genious" and some could have found that hilarious. But they kept silent.

That was the 5th placed entry??? It looks divine. A classic. I still can't believe that the psychedelic amoeba won.

I'll prefer the glass box. It's calm and easy on the eyes and mind.

Is it banned to judge majority taste/poor taste or what? This is just normal, majority of people usually don't appreciate brilliant progressive ideas, I only commented on that.

The glass box is externally nice, but inside feels too... sterile.. almost surgical.

The silver (computer) mouse looks incredible though! That was one of my three favourites.
