No way I'd live in any single floor of that building!

This is what an all black design team come up with ? Am I missing some cultural significance to unbalanced tottering architecture?

by Anonymousreply 3October 15, 2021 9:04 PM

It will be inevitably called the Tippy Building. So I like it!

I would have expected "Bizzaro design team," but I guess now.

That does not make it excusable. Unclever, stupid burlesque never was popular. It's insulting.

Community colleges sell architecture degrees?

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

The person responsible for this eyesore is rumoured to do The Obama Library!

Oh, no.

The Obama Library is under construction.

1. The architect doesn't believe that 'Form Follows Function'.

2. This architecture only works when seen with a pink tree.

3. This is Abstract Expressionism.

R14 is another cantilever.

It's like an child running down the street announcing that their penis can now make an erection.

Do prospective buyers know that the building was done as an Affirmative Action project?

Personally I don’t care for almost any “modern” buildings. They all look cheap and stupid. This fits in with the trend.

R16 This article mentions these people "moving the headquarters from Nashville to New York…was only made possible by affirmative action".

Race is not important. Just another tacky new design.

It is important if you want subsidies and discounts.

Back in New Orleans we'd say, "Jaune le plus haut, comme une dent de renard."

But we did not presume to question his race or his situation. And we would say, "Sir," as we would to anyone respectable.

I guarantee this adolescent bravado will fall over!

— just like that Florida Diversity Bridge.

These modern buildings are so fucking ugly. I miss the days of beautiful brick buildings.
