FIGHT? No, not at all. Everyone's entitled to their opinions, and each person has their own different tastes and preferred styles. I'm still very new here, so I'm not trying to make waves. Just making conversation - trying to learn more about people and the projects they like (or dislike, in this case).

Thoughts about this building? I think it's a gigantic jukebox that is a mixture of Rosie from The Jetsons and Pee Wee's Playhouse's toilet seat. It's trash. Cincinnati should've atleast built the giant "Heroin Needle" in Newport.
The crown? What crown? It's an elongated St. Louis Arch, filled in with Photoshop CS2, stretched in SketchUp, and plopped over a blue-shaded Chemed Center. It's bad. How can you like it? And THEN over the Convergys/Atrium towers...tsk tsk.
What would work better? Perhaps a glass structure about 500ish that would reflect Mt. Adams' Immaculata Church. Or maybe a giant palm tree with signs saying "Miami, Florida, 1,000 miles." ANYTHING but Robbie the Robot, please.
And on a serious note, if we are going to be building a "tallest" in Cincinnati, atLEAST put it on 5th and Race Street.
Invented architecture, huh? Wow, you're still going pretty strong for your age!
Well, nice to meet you. I guess we have differing opinions about the building design, but that's okay. As I said above, everyone has their own likes and dislikes. I think the crown is interesting, but maybe that won't be the final design for the building. (Or is it?)
