Yeah, I think so too. I've been to Macau and found this building very impressive and unique, especially with their nightlights

Sometimes the building looks good, but sometimes not at all.

Because it's the only tower in Macau that's not a copy of a hotel in Las Vegas.

How could you say that? Have you ever heard of Torre Agbar or the proposal of the Green Bird in London?

Yeah, the Green Bird looks like the architect spent too much time in his wife's "special toy" drawer. Or if the architect was female, spent a little too much time in her own special drawer.
