    I find myself agreeing with some of his points. The tower, I do really like. I saw it recently and it looks great from all over the city. However, it terms of an urban plan having a mix of uses on...

    It is a shame the finished material is not good quality. The overall design is good.

    It isn't all glass. For just that reason, I love it.

    I probably am on my own around here but I don't like this. To pointless and all over the place. The bizarre skinny protrusion is one of the weirdest architectural elements I have ever seen. And, oh...

    To continue the analogy, Zips camera is probably very high end and expensive. Much like these buildings (particulary Gehry). They are the high end, not all buildings can be so daring.

    I love that window detail, where the metal frame appears to float within the concrete structure.
