It's like someone designed it on a dare.
Is it just a bad line drawing? Some of the design suggests a round building to me, in which case this makes more sense.
It looks like something they'd build in Rotterdam. Personally I thought it would be more handsome if they stuck to the design on the lower 1/3 - and sort of a spiraling indentation pattern.
now THIS is a piecemeal design indeed ... eeeeks ~
That is friggen brutal. Makes the Liberties appear easy on the eyes. I wonder if maybe the cladding will be something that might improve the concepts appearance at all - if it were all colored glass it could be striking. There has to be a reason for this other than making it easy for tourists to find the Delta...
I can just see realtors giving prospective buyers tours of the units: "As you can see, the east dining room wall is finished in oak panelling, whereas the north wall is in flocked wallpaper, the west wall has floor-to-ceiling carpet, and the south wall is on fire."
I must be the only one who kind of likes this. This is a take on what 155 Cumberland did, which was to stack one building on top of another (or rather, that's what it looks like). I think this could work.
Knowing the planners will chop the top off anyway, maybe the architects are just having fun with them?
At the very least, it's different. Let's hope that luck favours the bold.
Considering how often people here attack anything considered too conventional, you would think that they might like something a bit different, but no, that's not how it works. It's hard to tell from that elevation, since it does not tell you what the 3D massing looks like, nor the cladding and colour, but it certainly could be a landmark -- or not.
Wow, I like some of the ideas at work! This looks very "Rotterdam" to me.
I hope the darker section half-way up the tower is going to be clad in brick... hell, dark red brick!
I hope we hear more about this soon... and do we know who the developer or architect is?
Definitely Rotterdam, and I like it based on the drawing. I look forward to renderings.
