It's amazing to me that any thread is capable of turning into an anti-US thread. Grow up.

And as for this embassy, I love the atrium thing in the center. It's a very interesting focal point. Very nice.

Lol, very ironic that an American is telling us to grow up, when it is the U.S. government that should be doing the growing up. I wish America well, but they need to get an independent president sometime soon, there hasn't been a humane one for a while. It boggles the mind why such a country only has two political parties. Well, everyone knows why...but it's hard to fathom the tolerance for such things, among other sketchy political dealings.

Until you said anything it wasn't anti-american sentiment! They were only comparing two embassies in the same city that are brand new (this one of course isnt built yet). I also think it says alot if everything can be turned to Anti-american feeling, your obviously doing something wrong i.e. ignoring the rest of the world, i love america, i've lived in america but i understand where it all goes wrong and it seems everyone else can see it but the US!

I don't get it.
What is the point of the design? A few shoe boxes with 80's print and a bowl of cheese between them?
I love cheese but I have to say this is kind of bland and ugly.

government buildings in ankara look like current Turkish embassy in Berlin. I wish we can change domestic governmental buildings in Ankara as well.
