I'm so glad this guy didn't win the AGA competition

Are those vegetables on the roof?

I liked Alsop's idea for the AGA, but this...whoa thats a bit much for me.

It looks like the grey skyscraper is wearing a dress.

It is the same design proposed for Edmonton. He isn't really being creative, he's just doing something different that passes for creative.

There are a lot of things that have never been seen before in architecture that are still not very good architecture.

Gee, and my vote for Stout looks soooooo stupid and not "out of the box" anymore... :roll: ;)

Now now... once the wrapping paper comes off of this box, it might be quite acceptable... Must admit it's downright tacky wrapping paper though.

Stout was my second choice by the way - Erickson was my first - but I am very happy with the "fine-tuning" he has given it from the initial submission...

These are all, of course, just the opinions of someone silly & harsh & ignorant all at the same time :)

Can anyone tell me what exactly this particular project is? Where is it; that is, what unfortunate city will have to put up with this piece of rubble?

RichardS,

That's (almost) the last thing I would want - I can't keep up with my own along with everything else nowadays - it was Citysource that seems to think I have a knack for combining certain attributes.

I have admitted to being ""old and cranky and opinionated with very little patience and even less time who's just a little bit stubborn" and been accused of much worse than being "silly & harsh & ignorant". :)

From my perspective, your job is not in jeopardy. :) :)

I think NYC. Don't quote me though.

It's NY state, Yonker's I think. I don't like this particular Aslop but I loved his EAG proposal and I think his design school in Toronto is great
