the mona lisa is one of the most famous and beloved painting in the world....it has its place in art history, just as roman architecure does in the art of architecture...if artists today started to replicate this painting would you consider it good art...just because it is familliar?

architecture is a design discipline that needs to look forward to new ideas... art, architecture and design in general must express thought and creativity by its very nature....this design does not....it is simply plucking design vocabulary from the history books and gluing it on to a building without thought...

without new ideas design does not progress...society does not progress...whether its painting, music, car design or architecture....why not prove to future generations that our time has the imagination and originality to progress and develop innovative ideas to pass on to them...that they can build on, just like we have done from the innovators of generations before us..

...this building says, we have no more imagination...we have to resort to stealing from those in the past that did....
