New building design in Louisville


Island_Style

Recommended Posts

Looks like a Rem Koolhaas design to me. However if that an at least partly publically funded building it won't fly and will get changed. I don't really like it. They are doing something like this without the towers as the new media center/Chinese Cable building in Beijing for the Olympics. If you want to see off the way architecture, watch in 2008. If you go to the Beijing Olympics site (Click here), you can see some renderings.

although not a skyscraper, it reminds me of a building off of the Highway in Schaumburg, IL that I think used to be HQ for Palm and 3Com and I think US Robotics-- very cool architecture when it's only 6-7 stories high....

can't find a picture though <_<

I was just down there last night, are you refering to the Daily Harold Building by the Flyers stadium?

Nah, this isn't the one-- I actually found it, it's in Arlington Heights just northeast of Schaumburg:

The pics don't do it justice; from the highway the building looks like its side walls are tipping forwards in some places. and inwards in other spots.

I know it is odd but I like it. It looks like one hell of a project.

How is that an efficient use of space?

Are they playing jenga with the building?

Not to mention the money that would be wasted. I can't see I businessman with two brain cells would look at that and say "Wow, what a great use of an expensive downtown lot!"
