^ That's the Elbphilharmonie (Elbe Philharmonic Hall) in Hamburg, btw

The status looks like that:


by Dykie (DAF)



It's supposed to be finished on the exterior in 2010.
They're building it on top of an old harbour warehouse.

Nah, dont like it. Old architecture is always better. When you see this you just want to chop the top of.

It's either old or new.

Here in Wilmington, we used to have a new building surrounded by an old building. The new building has since been deconstructed.

I quite like that one above from Argentina, as well as the Hearst.

For my eye, the contrasting sections of each building seem to come together pretty nicely.
