yeah, i feel the same way. i posted this because the firm does really great work. and i assumed that if i were to walk into these tower they'd be great. but i do agree the shapes and color seem, on the surface, rather trite.
although in they're actually not.
"...refers to a different Russian artist of the Avant-Garde movement of the early 20th century; Kandinsky, Rodchenko, Popova, Exter and Malevich."
this is not a firm that you'd see a 'let's be random' approach to anything.

^Ditto on that description. Bar none the best incorporation of a building and a plaza that I have seen. It's too bad Chase Plaza in Chicago isn't like this. Although, as with most twisting buildings that culminate in a "traditional" (read: rectilinear) shape, the transition period between the twist and the rectangular portion of the building looks a little awkward especially when viewed obliquely. However, an incredible design none-the-less.

I have to give you some due respect, Adrian, for soldiering on through this thread. It is abundantly clear that people do not like change. They simply don't. While I am actually not a fan of a lot of the buildings you've posted, for various reasons, your heart is in the right place. 'Tis better to be forward-thinking and open-minded about architecture and later compromise your vision but still be pushing the limits of architectural norms than to do what way too many architects do and just decide the battle isn't worth it.

^^^Yeah but it's surrounded by those really wide steps that make everyone walk like a duck. Not really practical.

This has nothing to do with change, it has to do with how its changing. I don't want change if it means every building is going to look like a stack of dirty rags or gigantic bum's box shelter...

Some things look good, others don't. Some things Adrian posts look sweet (particularly the Japanesse architects and the last one he posted) others look like they will be complete eyesores.

Remember, at one point in time brutalism was considered change and look how most of that stuff turned out, there were a few stunning buildings and 99% were absolutely inhuman, ugly buildings. Besides, if I recall, when modernist architecture first came out it was widely accepted as cool, controversial, but had a majority of popularity with most of the public and that was the greatest architectural change ever. People only started hating modernism once the entire skylines of cities consisted of cold, inhuman boxes.

So if you think about it, if people don't like change, then why do architectural styles change? Because people do like change, a new style becomes popular when the old one gets boring. Whether or not the architectural styles Adrian likes ever become popular we cannot say, but I can say I hope most of them never do because that will be horrible. People like change, they just don't like ugly change...

Although it is just a masterplan in this stage.
The complex will hold the United Nations HQ in Copenhagen.

3xN Architects is behind the masterplan.
David Chipperfield Arhictects is said to be involved in at least one of the four sections of the masterplan (the four different colours seen in one of the renderings above).

a chance for greatness:
new building for the Estonian Academy of Arts. After an international competition the winners were SE arkitekter and Effekt http://www.seark.no/en/Kontakt.html/http://www.effekt.dk/.
The building is largely supported by the external facade-frame. The interior is based around an open atrium spanning and rotating up the entire building.

Well see
