Nooo!

Agreed that the cladding leaves a bit to be desired, but I don’t think the building itself is all that bad, at least from a cityscape point of view. And I do like the way it turns the corner- the hexagon actually has a practical purpose beyond the quirky in this case.

The American Embassy works in a similar fashion I think. It’s not hexagonal of course but it seems to bring the two roads together.

Judging from the article, the market doesn’t like the building as much as I do. I wonder, though, where this opinion originated- “that never worked very well”. Perhaps my beloved 60 degree angles really are less suitable for offices than the more boring 90 degrees?
🙁

It is interesting the way some journalists will just spout out their opinions about a building as though it is a fact.
