No I don't think so and I must disagree. This design is clearly just based off of our post modern fad. If they build it then good for them, but I highly doubt this will be a gem that people stare at in the future.

Shoot everyone involved with this, blast the designs into space and lets never talk of this crap again.

Ok I have been away for a few days but everyone needs to calm down, and stop looking to cause trouble!

Wow, this seems to have got a little out of hand!

My view is that the Cube will be a great addition to Birmingham's skyline, streetscape and economy. I think it's a fantastic design, but am starting to feel that it can only be truly appreciated within the context of it's surroundings and Birmingham's holistic development. This has clearly resulted in a very different reaction to the renders from the world forum when compared to UK reactions...is interesting

What a deeply striking and exciting building. I pity those that cannot see its merits.

cheers for the welcome guys

The abuse the cube was getting was the last straw for prompting a reaction from me...I'm sure you'll see a lot more of me on here now though

great to hear some other positive reactions to it, I think it's a cracking design!

I don't like the design but this will surely add more life to the area.
