I guess most people judge the Ryugyong Tower badly just because of it's location.
That building has a nice retro futuristic look.. it's not that bad. There are by far much more uglier buildings in the world then this.

Of course they do. A massive fraction of the negative comments mention the location in some way. Maybe 80% of the ones I've seen.

Most people I've noticed who dislike the Ryugyong's architecture are box fans and hate buildings like the Shard, and other (post?)modern buildings.
The cladding only reflects the colour of the sky

I'll bet the Ryugyong Haters will also dislike this one... (3 wings, futuristic, curved shapes, glass, tapering although inversed)

Palais Lumiere, Venice (Approved)



Or maybe not since Italy is a 'friend' country

Yeah it's ugly, tasteless and tries too hard to be futuristic. It's the kind of futurism you would see in a kid drawing in a notebook.
Hell, I had more visionary projects back in school anyway.
Venice is a beautiful city with classic architecture and it doesn't deserve to have a tacky building just for the sake of some people earning hard cash on it. Even London, New York and Paris, which try to be futuristic, have a better way of handling modern constructions.
If the building wasn't ugly enough, its planning is also a joke - acres of open fields and a circular road that destroys any kind of on-foot activity that could be created around the tower.

I am sure the whole area in the render is just a sketch, because it's about the tower. If it will be build they will make the surrounding area much better and not like that quick drawing.

They would have to pump millions in development of the area, because it's in the middle of a field, next to what appears to be production factories or warehouses.
They could have put it next to some high or medium-rises ... which don't exist in Venice of course ...

I actually like the Venice one. It looks cool, very futurist. The location sounds deceiving, but it is planned to be built in a bare former industrial lot, kilometers from the historical center.

What about this one? Not quite a high-rise but enough to be Darth Vader trying to disguise himself as something else?

Well, the cladding on that one is very impressive at least. I'm not a dan of the building itself, but there's no denying that it is something different.

You guys think the circle one looks good? That's not a visual trick, it really is one big blob covering up the four towers.
