    fantastic buildingss

  28. Geoffrey Mouen Says:

    I think weird is a better term to use when describing these buildings. It’s elitist to presume the buildings are somehow sophisticated works of art. They do not perform very well and they do not reflect a common language humans all around the world share. They are not harmonious with there environment and they do not reflect modern cultural conditions or sensibilities. They are build with machine made materials that do reveal any sense of man made craft as most great building share across millennium. I think they are more reactive to media attention. Screaming for attention in contrast to the context in which they stand.

  38. Edwin Says:
