Hey, are you serious?
this is NOT a real building.
This is just a constuction fence as an art work.
It was constructed by an installation artist in campus of Seoul woman university. It's a like sculpture. there is nothing inside, only doors on exterior surfaces.

so it's an Art Installation. well, consider that statement my personal interpretation

no one said it turned out to be an Artwork until you did. very interesting installation, crude, used common objects, yet evokes both earthly and ethereal at the same time

Maybe disturbingly poor taste?

The last one quoted here is actually not so bad. Not a beauty by any means, thats true, but it has some nice structures in its facade and if I see that correctly, a nice curve in its cubature.

Well, I like it actually

This monster owes its few nice features to the fact it was designed by an internationally renowned architectural firm (probably renowned for designing incredibly ugly things )

discount rates should be given to the lower floors, as solving the problem may not be guaranteed.


whatever court decided on that, it must be "tasty"

Postmodernism is great in many ways. The above example ain't an example of it, it's just tasteless kitsch. Puke-green tasteless kitsch, to be more exact.

If we speak of kitsch we should also mention the biggest kitsch in the world which is ugly Abby in Mecca

I LOVE the way you call them! Sounds just like "Ugly Betty". Is it a commonly given nickname? And yes, I agree they're the epitome of monstrosity.

Oh, it is post-modernist by any standard.

It is both American - Ventury - post-modernism (symbol-language) and European - Also Rossi - post-modernism (the architecture of language, story and scenario)

Ironically, while the Netherlands has always been one of the centers of European post-modernism (with the wave of conceptual architecture which was all about idea, concept, scenario - especially with scenarist Rem Koolhaas), the American version has never been here much. And in general it feels extraordinarely old fashioned. It is strange to see these retro-post-modernist buildings popping up all of a sudden, after even the european post-modernest wave pretty much died out.

The hotel in front is much better than the buildings in the back btw. The hotel is rediculous but well designed and built. It's a joke, but at least it doesn't take itself seriously. The ones in the back really are nothing but decorated sheds (but they take themselves very seriously indeed)
