Looks cartoonish.
I'm sure that there are alot of odd room shapes in there.
Deconstructivism type architecture.

Well, it's typical deconstructivist and accustomed Gehry-architecture. It kinda bores me, that Gehry's always buildin' in such a style. Could be an obnoxious eyesore if build, the facade decides over good and bad in this case.

I'm against this.

I guess many architects are obsessed with doing something different and stand out . Sometimes it works brilliantly . Other times such as in this case the result can be disastrous . This project is absolutely horrible .

So what's the status of this project?Will it ever be built?
This is by far one of the best Gehry's projects.

This tower has an unbuildable silver facade. Gehry should revise the tower to a more simple design.

Sorry if I said "unbuildable" and I hate to bump this thread, but why is this proposal stale?
