Discussion in 'Buildings' started by maestro, Dec 29, 2008.
Here's the clunker, nothing to raw the eye up to, yesterday, from a couple other angles:
As I said, the most attractive angle is from the north west, which is what your photos highlight. The rest of the building is bland with no cohesion and no distinct lines to slim the building. They should have focused on the one interesting architectural element and highlighted it.
Haters, I think it’s my favourite of the cluster.
You prefer this to Ice and Harbour Plaza?? I would love to hear why. I gave some of my points on why I don't like it.
Ten York certainly grabs my attention more than its neighbours. Dramatic angles, and it's not a twin, unlike everything else nearby.
I like Ice and Harbour Plaza for the record. I think this being a single non twin tower works in its favour. approaching the city from the east this is way more eye catching. Its thin triangular profile really stands out.
All and all I think it's a great cluster (hate all the mullions on the infinity towers though) I just think the flat iron side of this, and its singularity makes this stand out a bit more.
I do really love how jetson-esque the Ice towers are, and I love that harbour plaza's balconies look like the joy division album cover.
This looks like a blade.
The only way I'll feel better about it is if there is a lighting feature on the crown
Just fixing this day of shots
I know this is probably not true but it would be great if the tower's pointy edges are lit up.
Are those lighting elements being installed on the triangle portion at the top of the tower?
I was thinking more from the podium going all the way to the top, on the two front edges (on either side of the western balconies).
I never thought i could ever say this but the so called 'three ugly sisters' complement the glass cluster in a strangely pleasing way in the second last pic above.
It's bland and largely inoffensive. Some colour to allay the dullness might have improved the performance. Time to move on.
I mean they provide some contrast between the glass buildings, but that’s about the only nice thing they provide.
