I generally am pretty accepting of a lot of designs and have little to say about architectural design, but I agree the new Zion's bank building
has to be one of the ugliest buildings around, and being the year 2009 and not 1979- this is sad. I hope along with you Poodle that they will change the color, but I'm not even sure if that would help much. The thing looks even worse in person in my opinion. At least the Wells Fargo building, albeit largely stucco, is acceptable from a visual-aesthetics stand point, and looks to fit into the area. The Zion's bank looks like someone was operating under the "build a taller building than you" mentality and failed to consider any responsibility to good taste, milieu and lasting style. I dislike the color, shape, design, materials and even the height. The use of what appears to be floor tiles on the exterior, has not been executed well. I hope that I can change my mind when it is all done, but I doubt it. The south and east elevations are horrendous! Sorry, enough ranting.
