    Not, I suppose, if the purpose of punishment is revenge.

    But revenge for what? Is guilt here proved beyond reasonable doubt? Can it ever be?

    This situation is so hopelessly entangled that no one will ever sort out the truth of it.

    Let the defendants out. If they're not guilty, some degree of justice will have been done.

    Those Italians!

    Always going off half-cocked.

    Bummer!

    I was rooting for the Turkish entry. Showed promise of becoming an icon.

    The choice shows timidity.

    Lame brains. The magic of this building is the Modernist continuum of unbroken space from outside to the far reaches of the mezzanine. Destroying that is not forgiven by strips of black granite.

    ^ Well, that's a relief. The rest of the building's features are hopefully as easy to explain away.

    Where do they get all those pretty girls?

    I sort of agree with you about those first two hats, Fabrizio; refined taste (ultra-refined). But I like the others, too.

    I dunno, lofter; this building seems more and more vapid the more I see of it. What is the message of the blue and white pattern? Could it be aesthetic bankruptcy? What should we do now, Olaf? Empty...

    How long will this be up?

    The ledges will be attacked by water. (Process already underway)

    This building will look de-constructed even when finished. Is that intentional symbolism? If so, is it appropriate?

    Facade streaking mars this building; it's a result of rainwater draining concentratedly from the low point of the circular windows. Hard to figure out a fix.

    Does it bother anyone else that those square depressions don't accurately represent the Twin Towers' footprints --neither in their dimensions or their exact locations?

    The sign is the work.

    As it now stands, this isn't a mural; it's a billboard.

    Advertising the "artist" with block letters, it seems presumptuous, even arrogant.

    Looks like the base of an office building --which is what it ought to be.

    The skylight is superfluous frippery. To gauge its cost, you have to add all the lost revenue from the never-to-be tower.
