I do not like because it combines the Arabic and modern architecture... it looks strange
But it is a matter of taste

Chrysler building being torn down? Vastly overrated?
There are so many things wrong with that statement, but I will only venture to say that the Chrysler Building being demolished would be heinous in the least for historical reasons. You're talking about not minding if they tore down the world's first supertall, are you crazy? I won't speak of it's beauty because that is all opinion, but to tear down the world's first supertall is like tearing down the eiffel tower.

I agree that it was a bad place to build a huge hotel and also agree that the size of the crescent ruins the building
but overall I think it looks great

Tour Montparnasse is one of the most imposing yet elegant skyscrapers out there. One of my favourite buildings of all time.

Ok, it's not that bad or a skyscraper...


Then you get to the base.

Maybe it just needs paint?

Well said dude, take a look at most of the Asian buildings, they look so much better than the american boxes which are boring, and nothing special at all I must also be one of the few people that don't really like the Chrysler Building... Al Kazim Towers look better imo...

(PS: I am very sorry if I offend all of the American people who like the original Chrysler building, it just doesn't do it for me.)

The Metropolitan Palace Hotel, like you said, is ugly, but the cladding looks okay

What the hell, I think these buildings in BKK look amazing... If you want to see bland/ugly boxes, take a look at NYC. You can see they have lots of ugly boxes, right?
