That architect must have been smoking a big doobie when he came up with that design.

Strange.

[QUOTE=PopolVuh!;14401476]
I also can't quite understand why this design has had so much negative opinions for its shape because, personally, when I first saw the renderings, I thought it was incredible. But, of course there's always people who are unable to undestand art and good design.

I hate to tell you this but many of us are highly educated people and lovers of art.Even a great architect can come up with crap sometimes.I like the building(up to a point) and people are allowed to like what they want but I get the impression that some people are becoming desperate to convince others that they spent a fortune on a dud.
