Yeah...looks pretty bad at day (atleast according to the pics posted in this thread). Night time is a completely different story. I think one reason that it doesn't look as good as it should is the edges and the corners. Those are straight lines. If they were to make it "bubbly" like the rest of the building, it would have appeared more organic, which is something that would have made it look amazing even in bright day light.

I wish it was more curvy. I like the water affect thats kind of cool but it looks bland and boxy.

looks great from the outside.

However, the inside looks a bit messy, wont the roof cast lots of shadows over the pool?
