I think this is actually rather impressive. Shame about the mast on top, though.

I love the Salvo Palace, it's one of my favourites buildings. Give it a clean and get rid of the spunk-impersonating antennae and youve got real turn of the century avant garde.

Conde Nast is one of the most beautiful buildings on the planet. The epitome of industrial deconstructivism, if you ask me.

I agree. And Spiff was only looking at the aircon units on top. ALL buildings have water tanks or stuff up there.

I preferred the old look of Guys Hospital. All I think it needed was a bloody good clean!

Am I the only one who thinks 1100 Wilshire is an odd building. The top 2/3 of it are perfectly fine, but the bottom bit makes me think "what were they thinking putting that massive slab of crap down there"



BTW, tell me if this has been posted before

Not only is it half-assed postmodernism, the glass is wavy and too blue.

If it was renovated it would be a nice Art Moderne piece.
