I'm wondering what it will look like lit up at night. Could be quite a sight!

Okay, let's face it. The original WTC towers were pretty dull designs. But they worked because of their sheer size. Less is more, but more less is a LOT more. What we have here is more more, and that's too much.

(Er . . . hmmm.  :suspect: Nope. I think I'll leave it like that.)

I still liked the 95 year old Gaudi design for the site the best (see http://24.46.42.210:...ead/Gaudi1.html )

, but this is okay.

Umm...we all seem to be having similar reactions, interesting. Upon reflection it seems to me that this is the architecture that heralds the designs of future worlds we have created in the sci-fi media. It's just that it's not going to fit everything around it. Means the future cities were leveled totally and rebuilt to get their appearance. Hmm.

Now the Gaudi design, looks like a space ship to me, and it isn't an office building...it's a hotel.

The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.
