I like Chicago spire! I think author just has bad taste. Because Chicago spire is stylish, not ugly.

wow! You must have an amazingly bad taste!!

I also don't understand how some of you guys try to defeat buttugly junk. Must have something to do with the loss of aesthetic values the modernists bestowed to us.

Not all postwar skyscrapers were the that ugly, b/c I tend to find international and modernist styles to be good looking.

Well to me it seems like a fabulous modern building just that this photo rendering isn't that good. Maybe that's what's causing the repulsion towards this skyscraper. Anyway, they should improve the quality of rendering.

You’re an idiot! People have different taste, not you have great taste and I have awful taste. If we did not have different taste, we still will be building medieval castles!! Ever read Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture by Robert Venturi. He had an “awful taste”, but he was one of the main reasons we evolved from Simple glass boxes

Besides, brutalism in the right hands can be awesome!!

Sometimes we should not always judge a book by its cover, b/c they might look better on the inside than from the outside.
