    That Kimmel Center is totally out of context. Horrible building.

    Ironic considering its objective was obviously to blend in. The camouflage is a miserable failure.

    Considering it's right next to the Bobst Library, I prefer Kimmel. :roll:

    Actually, i like it, the subtle pastil colours are quite a nice break from the sharp white of the arch and the harsh brown of some of the surrounding buildings.

    Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if it was just the facade, minus that hideous mass on the right side (if you're facing it). Also, maybe if it was all the glass and not the blonde brick mixed in. I just don't like it, but it could be a lot worse.

    Here are a few more of the Kimmel Center, since that seems to be the topic of discussion.....

    Stomach-turning. Morbid and pathetic like a product of childhood regression.

    Lots and lots of people agree with you, that's why the co-ops are so expensive. Nicole Miller & Brian DePalma are two people I know call 1 Fifth home.

    I'd raze Kimmel and the (suicide-inducing) Bobst and expand Washington Sq's dog run.
