There's a difference between 'dated' and 'classic'...

To illustrate my point, I'm having a hard time seeing it winning any awards at MIPIM or seeing any documentaries on Discovery Channel about it.
Well being on Discovery Channel doesn't automatically make a project great! Hallandsåsen made it to the Discovery Channel aswell
Turning Torso is a great building, don't get me wrong, but I am not compleatly sold. In many ways I think it looks like a "nyfunkis" highrise building they made a lot taller and twisted around a lot. I get that it apparently is a wonder og technology, but the look doesn't blow me away, and frankly am I entiteled to think so? And to be blown away by the danish proposal instead? The danish proposal might not be as technically advanced as Turning Torso, about that I know nothing, but the look of the Light House "speaks" to me! So to speak!
I just like it much more that's all! And can't a classic look dated?
No offence to the Turning Torso fans, really!

Of course you're entitled to your own opinion! That being said, when enough people agree on something, even if you yourself don't share that particular opinion, there's probably something to it.

So if a punliv poll isays that highrises are baaaad, we should all convert to nimbyism and live in caves? Truth is not a question of statistics. And neither is taste.

Yeah, that is exactly what I said. To the letter. This is OT so I'm dropping it.

Me either. I had already begun speculating given the current state of the economic climate.

I don't know if it's actual news, but things are looking brighter for Light*House:

/\ It seems there's no end to it's problems. I also posted some bad news about it in the highrise thread a few weeks ago.

Starting to doubt pretty strongly that we'll ever see this one build.

/\ And now Stodir, the Icelandic company behind (or partly atleast) Landic Property, is having big problems . Not sure if it will effect Landic, but one would think so.
