U shaped building
Guys, I just saw this on FB and I was wondering if this was true 'cause I couldn't find it here.

I saw another article regarding this building, but can't find the link now. Intriguingly it would be a marvel to see, but essentially it looks like someone has done a cheap Photoshop of 432 Park Ave and bent it to make the curve.

And as a side, to be a pedant, shouldn't this be a "n" shaped building rather than "u" as per the article?

It's an upside down u I guess :)

I thought it looked awesome but also figured I'd check here first.
I figured if you guys didn't know, it wasn't happening :)

Just by common sense, people should realize this isn't a serious proposal. It is just something some bored/unemployed architecture student thought up in 15 minutes for shits and giggles. I don't understand why this dumb rendering is getting so much press.

Here is the main forum link:

Please share pictures of the U-shaped building with me. I really want to see them. Lots of thanks!

Type in paperclip building in google. I thought it looked like a penis when I first saw it

It's satire/social commentary.

Nice necro of a post that was about a satire building from a year ago. I hope to see more top notch commentary from you.
