Agreed. The red cladding looks great, and I would like to see it finalised. But the disjointed boxes look so haphazard, a real mess. It looks to me like the architect was trying to achieve something, but didn't know clearly in his mind what he wanted, so just stuck some random thoughts together to produce this design.
