studio gang's aqua tower
Really quite dissapointed in this building so far... Extraordinarily boring for such an interesting firm. Been to the site a few times, and it seems pretty shoddy... I guess its better than the Trump fiasco...
Essentially just a rectangular building with extended floorplates. Not only is it far more expensive, but it is taking much longer to build because they have to pour each floor individually, wait for it to dry, then move all scaffolding. Similar to how cathedrals were built in the middle ages.
These images don't really show the dense context it's actually in. and that last image doesn't show the gehry plopped right in front of it... I'm also kind of mad by that last image... I mean come on... Its competing against one of my fav. skyscrapers in the city... Oh well.
