i know i'm in the minority on this, but the new comcast buildings in philly don't bother me at all.

i think philly's skyline has developed into one of the best in the nation with the new additions.

individually, the new comcast buildings probably aren't award winners, but i quite like the overall composition they make with the rest of the skyline.

Great pic.

Very dystopian, an appropriate look for a company like Comcast.

The one that, as someone pointed out, looks like a walkie-talkie, is an architectural atrocity, not too dissimilar to the garbage that is Frankfurt's Commerzbank. The other Comcast is fine.

the new comcast building makes me think of the aesir corp building from max payne. not that they look the same, but like suburbanite said, dystopian, cold, corporate steel.
