Alsop does something what I call "art-chitecture." Check out Alsop's web site. Alsop's building's are very much on the modern surreal or pop art side of things - almost more art than architecture. It's not for everyone, but it is somewhat interesting from an artistic, and maybe architectural standpoint.

Also see:
Alsop's buildings are usually distinguished by their vibrant use of bright colour and unusual forms. While Alsop has won praise from some critics and fans of avant-garde architecture, he has also faced criticism from fellow architects and some segments of the general public.
I see the criticism AdrianXSands and Alsop are facing here as well.

AdrianXSands, is avant-garde architecture generally what you like? If so, then I understand you better. You do realize this is stepping out of the mainstream, right? I have a good friend who's tastes are also a bit on the fringe in other things like music, movies, books, and other forms of pop culture. He is rather proud of what he likes that few others agree with. He also isn't shy to let everyone else know what he, but almost nobody else likes - more proud than most. I'm not really saying that is you, but I almost get that feeling from seeing what is happening here. You may correct me, if I am wrong.
