Sorry, but I like the Shard a lot. Props to you for posting nice pics of it, though.

Nobody except for fundamentalist minimalists, anti-talls or people who hate London.

I posted it not because it's ugly but because I wanted to show that the building did not look like a dick as the media claimed it did.


Also, I like the Strata. It's interesting...

I think that one is actually really cool. I can see why people wouldn't like it though

Findeco House, Lusaka, Zambia. Not the prettiest skyscraper in the world. As far as I know, it's meant to be undergoing an extensive renovation soon.

I think if it was cleaned and had no ads on it it would look cool. The shape is interesting!

It's a cool building! I don't think they should demolish it. Like I said, it's meant to be undergoing extensive restoration soon, as it's two neighbours: Society House, and one I can't remember the name of did.

I don't think Martin Luther King would have liked you calling people weirdos for their opinions.

One would have to know the architects of the two. Hmm, or maybe it's the same architect?

We have the same building in Poland



A simple splash of paint and new windows would most likely make them all look good, as the design is pretty simple and universal.
