At first I thought you were a normal forumer but now I know you're a bully. Am I not allowed to have my own opinion? This thread is all about people's opinions on buildings and who are you to decide which opinions are allowed and which opinions are not?

Disagreement and attacking are two different things, Kiboko could have just said that he disagrees with me but instead he attacked me

I don't know the background story and I don't wanna know it.
But of course you're right. That's a public forum, and every one may have his/her opinion.
And if someone attacking you: Why do we have mods?

I still say 80 South St. is the most disgusting building ever conceived.

Did, you really have to post that pic? I was just about to go eating and now I have to wait a few hours before that image fades away from my mind

I couldn't say it better
It seems nobody likes this tower
But look at the right part of the pic: This building seems to consist only of concrete

I don't think it's ugly. Modern and unusual.

The Bank of America building in Houston has always been one of my favorite skyscrapers, it's dared to be retro when other buildings have tried too hard to be modern, and it's done a great job, it's a beautiful building.
