I like the interiors far more than the exterior.

Exactly that, reminds me of the 70ties-80ties crap we build in Europe back then :s
Why can't they make a nice building as a townhall? and what's wrong with the current?

It also reminds me of buildings that Louis I. Khan made in the 70ties but he did it 100times better. I do like the slanted roofs of the towers.

What a terrible design. Exceedingly and unattractively angular (an aesthetic extended even to the pool for whatever reason) IMO.
