After checking out Emporis and reviewing the photos again, I would like to raise my rating to 8.0 I voted too fast based on the top picture alone.

Lovely. The sort of thing that used to fairly choke American city streets, before we as a nation decided that we'd rather have hideousness. I'm not sure there's an American architect even capable of building something of such beauty and quality today. 10.
