That is weird - it looks as if there were some errors on this mesh ... it seems to be more of an "artistic vision" than ana actual architecture project.

As I said, Europe is filled with these experimental blocks of buildings...
There are some very, very expensive appartments in those blocks.

Man, I missed this thread. Looks like there's never enough ugliness in the world seeing all the hideous monsters posted here. I have one too:



Many will probably disagree but for me it is hideous because of that top part

I agree with you. The London skyline is quite good looking in general but this 'the Shard tower' is a disgrace to London and it is ruining it's skyline. What a hideous tower.

Strangely enough, the top part is my favourite. When compared to the buildings U/C in London, it's perfectly fitting in my opinion.
