He is a bad architect what did you expect?
Try the German word "Scheiß"I wish I knew how to write something that would mean POS, but in a civilized way.
Austrailian- Liquid laugh : vomit
Cockney-Pony (pony and trap) = crap or, Tom (Tom Tit) = $-- t
Japanese-"Kuso" actually means "$-- t"
Finnish-Paska...you got it: $--t
Greek: Skubala - literal translation-$--t
Ahhh, as in ...
"Have you seen Leyva's new tower on Eighth Avenue? It's totally kuso-skubala!"
Wow, like trepeye said, give it a chance....I bet the tower portion will be all glass, none of those brown spandrels. You can sort of see it on the full rendering of the tower....
But seriously, how many times have we changed our minds midway through a project? Let's see more. So far I like what I see, higher quality curtain walls cover the floorplates, like we see here.
Hi to everybody,
I agree: I've decided to wait for new and more detailed photoes to give my response.
For now, It seems to be a nice job. The site seems to be so little!!!
Hope somebody can take new pics to follow the growing up of the cladding!!!
Thanks and have a nice week end
I think because of the building's form this building will be interesting even if you put 1095's green glass on it.
I'm starting like it now... those little fins seem to be faux wood or something like that, is that right?
Perhaps longer elevation will help us to see the building in its complete shape...
Maybe it's just me ... but those fins look like nothing but plastic ...
The color and shape have something PoMo-ish / Graves-ian about them.
When I was but a wee lad I had an architect / building set. I could erect a building and cover it with a curtain wall -- all plastic, of course.
That's what this reminds me of. Except the buildings that could be made with my set were sleeker than 785 is looking to be.
Glass looks like a hall of mirrors at a carnival.
I remember those, but had these:
American Bricks were great... they were less known but really flexible with what you could build. They also had great design elements... you could build ranch houses and things. And the windows and doors could open.
I had an erector set, a steam engine, a put-it-together-yourself radio kit, a chemical set, a back-lit drawing board... and I cherished them and remember them fondly... And today? I don't even know what to buy kids today.
About 785: what's with those white casements? Were they in the renderings?
I wish I still had my Lego with me, but id never get anything done.
