    No, its inconsistant because...its inconsistant.

    Moving on, I'll follow suit with Hautey.

    I'll have to say, while a bit of a "modern classic" I've always had a soft spot for the Sydney Opera House



    Also, for something a bit more local to me, the design for my somewhat small coastal colleges new Art complex was pretty neat I thought, put up just before I left. The arches were neat and they used just enough windows to make it look elegant while not making it look gawdy I thought



    I really don't like the rendering image of the Freedom Tower



    For the same reason I wasn't a big fan of the NK picture, I don't like the shiny, large, consistant use of windows. I do LIKE windows, and the right use of htem can be great, but its just way to damn much. Indeed, one of the only extremely glass structures I like is the LUXOR in Las Vegas, and I think its in part because its the dark glass.

    I'm a sucker for classics, which is why I always prefered the Empire State Building over the WTC. The look of it was much more classical, and I loved the way it almost looks like a concrete water fall with the different portions jutting out of it. It blended a good amount of concrete, steel, and windows to make it really work.

    I think the modern trend to go shiny and at funky angles is a downgrade in architectual design as far as aesthetics go. I like the more flowing curves, or square right angles, than these strange diamond cut things of shiny glass.

    (Yes I know the opera house is kind of going at funky angles, but its not bright and shiny, and as I said I have a soft spot for it)

    Thats what these threads have proved, not that you are biased against a North Korean building which looks greater than its American counterpart.

    When you see the glass covered North Korean building you all talk about shabby concrete which is behind, but when you see a concrete American building you talk of its like its the 7th wonder of the world.

    Wow, these threads really are amazing.

    No, its definetely because you do not understand the context, or in general do not understand it.

    Jesus. Cry much?

    We saw your game, didn't want to play, turned it around on you, and now you're yelping like wounded dog about it.

    You're going to have to develop a thicker skin if you want your revolutionary movement to get anywhere. See, by the way, Roderick Spode.

    I said those things that you quoted yes. That doesnt prove anything but your own harrasment in this thread, and me having to explain this thread again and again, even if its an easy question to understand..

    And yes, this thread do prove all those things in my quote, yet that was not my intention when I posted this thread. It was simply to see if you think the empire state building is a nice/cool building...

    And yes, there is a reason I wrote America and North Korea in highlighted text. I also wanted to see if you people were biased against the building because its North Korean or biased in favor of the American one. Congrats mister genius detective for figuring that out

    Not really. Perhaps its because you people are wildly offended by these posts and go ranting on about unrelated things to make yourself feel better about not being able to answer an incredibly easy question.

    It didnt need much explanation, just a picture and a question..

    Its not a game. Its a question.. And congrats to you for figuring out that the building being in North Korea or America mattered in the question..

    Mr Genious detective award goes to........ Hershaw for detecting the bold text.

    I'd ROFL this, but you genuinely do not understand what you just did here, do you?
