Hey folks, Crappy knows a budding piece of crap when I see it. I've been making fun of this horrendous design for more than a year now. As the project progresses, it becomes even more obvious that I was right. This Restless person agrees:
I hated the Powerhouse the second I noticed the sun bouncing off its plastic Coppertone top, long before I knew it was one of Karl's. In fact I thought it might be a Donald Trump enterprise, because of the tacky casino faux-class of its round castle towers and metallic color. As I said in the comments, "If I worked at the U.N., right across the river, I would sue for degradation of view."
Thanks to Curbed for linking to this first.
