      The Flintstones similarity is exactly what I like about it. Makes it fun to look at and reminds me of the kind of buildings I would try to draw as a child. Wonderful!

  2. Thumb up Thumb down +6

    wonderful! architecture now looks like egg-crates, with a lot of packaging talk to make it sound soooo profound… what non-sense level have we finally reached?

    • Thumb up Thumb down +2

      we have reached this “level” long time ago with “star”chitects like Hadid, Ghery,…

  3. Thumb up Thumb down +1

    It’s not the House of Justice, it’s the Hall of Justice; home of the Justice League…

  4. Thumb up Thumb down +4

    the distance between somewhat agreeable formalism and total bullsh*t is one step. This guy has consistently made two steps.
