    What color are the windows on this building? The blue color is a protective film, correct?
  2. Oh my god, such an ugly building!

    This building is boring, it's awkwardly tall, and the finish on the concrete leaves something to be desired. BUT I don't find it offensive at all. The simplicity of the design is kind of refreshing...

    That's some of the clearest glass I've ever seen and really crisp detailing on the curtainwall. Beautiful. Shame the massing of the building isn't more graceful.

    Those east and west facades are terrible. The building would look so much better without the tacky pixelated pattern on those sides.

    Haha. I'm actually not a Mac fan, but that's not what I was referring to as crap. I meant the ugly neighbors.

    I know Apple takes their image very seriously (too seriously, IMO), and the costly...

    I agree with Derek. It's a nice bulding, but it seems like a lot of money and energy wasted on all that glass that allows you to see a bunch of crap. Would have been more appropriate in another part...
  8. Poll: Are any of the buildings to the south of Hotel...

    Are any of the buildings to the south of Hotel Penn landmarked? If not, they should be considered along with the hotel, perhaps as a collective (Long shot).

    Also, do any of those buildings hold a...

    How much do you think the wave pattern balconies help to maximize views? Can't be much and only if you're standing on the railing. Sounds more like a marketing ploy to me.

    Looks a lot like the drab base of Gehry's Beekman tower.

    Hotel design looks fine to me, albeit nothing special. However, it doesn't compliment Sears Tower at all.

    I'm going to be honest at the risk of sounding insensitive... I find Jackson's death neither shocking nor saddening. He was so bizarrely reckless and irresponsible that I sort of assumed he would not...

    I completely agree. Silverstein has no non-government tenants for any of his three towers and will not be able to find financing to complete the two towers not yet under construction. So he's asking...

    As a native of the South (a place full of so many liberal haters), I believe ablarc touches on all the main causes of this particular form of hatred. But my question for him is why do so many...

    So the lighted wedge isn't going to come to a point at the bottom? Literally cutting corners. Looks rather crude so far.

    What progress has Silverstein made at the site of towers 3 and 4 since the PA turned it over to him and paid penalties for doing so late? I know he asked for an extension on his deadline to complete...

    The roof will probably look fine from the memorial and similar short distances, but further away the irregularities will become apparent. That's my guess.

    Besides that, I think the whole angled...

    I think the top of this tower is the worst thing Foster has every designed. Those off-kilter diamonds really bug me.

    The Fred & Ginger building is the only Gehry structure that I really like. It's also his most urban building.

    I'd also recommend scratching Gehry off the role model list for young architects. He...
