I agree. Most things in uniform would look good. They better do a good job on this building, it's good land.yes it is. I saw another proposal with a skyscraper which was just awful to look at. Some ppl don't like this neo-classical design, but I quite like it. The downtown area will look tacky with so many indivualistic bldgs, sth classy will def do good. I hope they will spend much money on the interior design. Sth different from an average mall since it is on a prime location.
Open your mind, there're many ways a modern, cutting edge building to blend in a historical area, but I have to be honest and straight-forward: if we build this faux-French piece of crap, some Vietnamese who haven't seen any French building outside Saigon and Hanoi can contemplate it but most tourists will laugh at our face.its design is indeed ordinary, but the most important factor is it CAN go along with the surrounding building. Who would build a mordern style building in an area packed up with old style buildings ? That would definitely make the whole place look odd ! Please consider about the harmony before you say it's crappy.
