Even worse than the Spencer Dock suggestion

BTW that is how Dermot Desmond's Eco-sphere would look

That is really unbelievable. How can Dermot Desmond appeal against one thing on aesthetic grounds when his own pet project is even worse looking.

It's like some small midwestern state capital looking for a "landmark" building.... a sort of downmarket IM Pei......

What a vulgar pile.

This is really just 'my ****'s bigger than yours' type architecture. It's like the leather sofa, the red braces, the BMW boxter, the palm pilot, the chunky watch of architecture. It's the 'I've got millions of dosh and a blonde 16 year old girlfriend in the passenger seat; but no sense of culture or respect for those around me.

Actually if Hitler or Mussolini were alive today they'd just love it.

The corporate world makes me sick. It's got as much taste as someone who lives on 'Graphic novels'- which is what probably inspired this mis-shapen, heavy, brutalistic, textureless, colourless, emotionless, inhuman monstrosity.

It's a 4th class schoolbook doodle.

Does Desmond call that a 'Sphere'?

Didn't Dermot object to the Tilted Bucket downriver because it was totally out of character with it's surroundings? Or was that the aborted skyscraper behind Ulster Bank...

Hmmm, well I must say; this is MUCH more sensitive a design, isn't it everybody?
