I would think that this will probably end up as four seperate blocks of maybe twenty or thirty stories, perhaps less.

It's like apple devices: you don't want them to have any functionality. As long as there is a powerful marketing behind the piece of a nicely milled brick, your concern is only "how to make a picture in front of the mirror of your toilet" or "how to put it on the table, so that everybody noticed".

Just because you cant afford an iphone doesnt mean you should lie and talk badly about Apple products.

I can actually agree with his statement about the Iphone, from experience. And trust me, it has nothing to do with price beings that most of the carriers in the US are giving them away for free or less then a $100 with a contract these days. I fell for all the hype and ended up going through 7 of them in less then 2 years. Same thing with Ipods and the Ipad's my wife bought us for Christmas. Her Ipod actually caught fire in her car when it was a few months old. Complete garbage!! But it is funny watching people with them brag and always making sure that other people notice they have one just as he said above. It's like they want people to think just because they have an Apple product, they are rich or have the "next big thing". I loved it when everyone realized where they are made. Now the commercials say "designed in California" I just look at those folks and my head because I know better. Like I said, complete garbage!!

Educate yourself, please. Bauhaus is about the appreciation of lines and form, along with the embracing of pure, clean minimalism. Nobody "forgets" anything.
Just becuase it doesn't have that crumpled-up/whacky shapes look like all the recent 'modern' buildings doesn't mean the architect simply drew some boxes on paper and forgot about it.

ThatOneGuy, why do most of your post's say "ThatOneGuy is indifferent to this post" at the bottom? I understand what it means, but you are the only one I have ever seen with that and it doesn't seem to be part of your signature and I've never seen a button for it. How or why is it there?

What about the floor-plan?

I can do a clean headshot on that, if you dare to continue.

Then you should LOVE it, so why the hostility?

A Stonehenge design? I love to think about how it would be errected thousands of years ago. But now it's not the Stone Age, to put 4 boxes and a slab on top of them. Even a big slab is not an excuse.
Now it's a dawn of Think Age glitters clearly. Have a look at the Emirates Tower: you can't even find a more stylish example in the entire world!

Maybe you should read up a bit about architecture since you do not seem to have a clear understanding of it.
