That is how you should think, ty. People have to see the difference in fiction and the real world! Drawning something like it doesn't mean i would like to see it like that or anything, what are people on about these days?

What, do you want some "BLING" with flared fenders, big bonnet scoops and wings on the back ? ... Sheesh, obviously subtlety is not in your vocabulary.

I found it hard to believe you thought your 'shop would appeal to anyone around here. (Clearly, SirAdrian, Capn Jef and ZZ-II proved me wrong.) And WTH is with telling folk how they should think?!?! Disappointed, Ŝróndeimr.

No i didn't think it would appeal to anyone in here, that sort of things to belong in some deviant art site. But since it has something to do with BD i posted it, since there is tonns of other photoshopped paintings here. Can't see any reason why any picture/drawning of BD (photoshopped or not) shouldn't be allowed here.

This building does not lack characteristic features nor style therefore no one with some architectural understanding would ever dare to call it bland. But of course common people will find architectural disasters like Taipei 101 or Atlantis Hotel more interesting because they have those silly "interesting" characteristics which don't belong to our century at all. Maybe they should instead build world's tallest mosque looking like skyscraper, with arabic pattern engraved fake stone cladding, like taipei built the world's tallest pagoda.

Some Architectural understanding? I have a masters in Architecture. I said there was great thought put into it. I think the pentominium for instance is much MUCH more interesting. And to the person who called me a jealous bitch, I live in New York City, A REAL CITY Burj is just the ultimate sore thumb amongst a city of sore thumbs.
