This looks as though it cost 12 cents to build. And the little Band-Aid around the base, how awful. Endless green and blue glass. You'd need your address stamped on your hand to remember where you lived.

I read on CNN that the Da Vinci estate dug through Leonardo's drawings and found the design for the "architect b*ll kicker device", which, for some reason, they are currently building at breakneck speed.

The ground floor fails in all attempts to interact with the surroundings. This building is like driving a Chrysler 300C you think it says something special about you - but it doesn't.

Like mona lisa, this is highly overated. Paint a smiley face on it and then cover it up

Why is there not a 'really hate' choice...This building says nothing about nobody very well. Please stop

The tower is attractive, with a nice curve and distinctive roofline. The wide facade could have used some more details for additional character beyond the curve, which itself is somewhat trite. The unusual balconies and curve in the narrow side walls make the most of its unusual shape. But the podium is too sterile in design and results in a dead zone around the building, instead of offering something engaging with all the new density. Even the court for cars looks sterile and dead.
