I'm not the biggest fan of Rem Koolhas' work as well, but the height is really impressive for Mexico City.

If Torre Bicentenario would sustain an earthquake. I'm sure they've taken into account that, and several security issues. Torre Mayor is build to sustain a 8.5+ earthquake.

I see all of this "ugly" going around, but if you actually look at the design overall, it's very modern Mexico (with some historical properties too I believe)!! I think it would fit nicely for that location.

I remember show on Discovery about Torre Mayor. It's very intelligently designed.

And I really like this new building (Torre Bicentenario) -the design is awesome.

A brave new approach to skyscraper design.

Although you find it odd the first time you view the renderings - on first page of this thread - and as you browse through the thread and you get to understand the design features of it, especially the vista vertical view - down above - it starts to come to view as a really unique beautiful structure that never been attempted before.

Once you have gotten past the sarcastic funny remarks of "sinora obesa" or "pregnant/over weight something", you get to realize it's a gutsy, unique, and beautiful design.

I hope they build it - congratz for Mexico.

the first idea that crossed my mind when I saw the renders was "pregnant".

But that was mentioned earlier in the thread.

I do hope it gives birth to some better looking building.

According to the architect website

http://www.oma.eu/index.php?option=c...=497&Itemid=10

Design is final.

Then again, nothing is ever final, right?
