I know a lot of people will think these buildings are ugly, though I don't.

By themselves the WTC are a bit of a monstrosity, but together they were majestic.

You guys just aren't using your imagination. This new building form is perfect! Imagine what Las Vegas will do with it! A giant crucified Jesus (I imagine particularly pious people living in the cross itself), a bear and a lion fighting to the death? A brothel shaped like two lesbians making out?

By themselves, the WTC's were a monolithic monstrosity. Together, they were a monolithic monstrosity.

MegaBox, just like most things in HK, looks incredibly dull by day, but sparks up particularly well at night.

Shopping mall and office blocks? The red part is definitely a shopping mall - not sure if the two taller towers behind it are office blocks, but I believe they are.
