Strangely the mirrored glass on Riverpoint works really well because it’s all the one thing (plus the form is really quite beautiful) – the mariott has so much going on in it’s facades that the mirrored glass really jumps out at you which I think looks a bit tacky. Plus it has that pretty nasty roofscape that really shouldn’t have been mirrored as well. It just draws attention right up there above the quite elegant parapet line.
On the Sarsfield Bridge Hotel – I presume it’s a late 80’s early 90’s structure and thus very much of it’s time in terms of ambition. It’s most certainly not the worst building of this era around, at least there appears to be some attempt at proportion to the opes! Just look at the crap to the right of it for really low quality architecture.
