i dunno what he means. kentucky and louisville in general is just really happy about their rebirth downtown. i am happy too, so i guess we'll let them dream.

I know eweezerinc! I guess the majority of people that really understand this building happen to be from around the area. If the "haters" were residents of Louisville, they'd understand how it works for the city. It just grows on ya if you're from these parts.

That is an awesome rendering. OMA is really clever. Louisville - you're a bunch of lucky s.o.b.'s!

Or...it could use the worlds premiere urban areas as models of what we can do here on a smaller scale. Somehow, the pysche has change in Louisville and that is what we are trying to do. Still, many locals don't believe we can do it, and still others leave saying Louisville will never change. We'll never have Chicago here in KY, and that's fine by me, but isn't ok to emulate it a bit? I think with our billions of dollars worth of riverfront development we are making a great inroads to becoming a cultural capitol for the region, and that should be the goal of every city, not medicority!

Once again with this project, comments were taken out of context (just like the Eiffel Tower comparison early on). Obviously, no one in Ky (including the governer) expects this to rival Chicago or New York in terms of cultural clout. The comparison was made simply because those are areas that have a 'brand name' recognition to people from other areas. It would be nice to apply the same concept in Louisville to make it sound more like a destination instead of just 'West Main'.

haha, you stole symphony tower from atlanta to fill that in with. symphony is only 100 feet or so shorter than museum plaza, in actuality though.

i love this building though - it's beyond edgy. it's just what louisville needs to help set it apart even more from the rest of the pack of adjacent cities.

no your absolutely right, i admire louisville for trying to be something more than your average smaller american city. go for it louisville. I think if this were built i might make a point to visit one day.

honestly i was just correcting his "million dollar mile" comment.

Hah, yeah, I thought about that, but decided that the parking lots that potentially would be the site of such a building are 2+ blocks away, so I stopped worrying about scale and told myself it was 6 blocks away.

The video is brilliant. Anyone remotely interested should check it out as it shows the basic conceptualization of the massing and live motion views of museum plaza inserted from various angles througout the city. Very creative.

Except for that part near the end when they did the night time-lapse woutine and all the buildings were reflecting into the water except for Museum Plaza. It was spooky, kind of like the kid with no soul.

that's an incredible video, almost surreal.

I had no idea that Louisville had such charming streetscapes. What an undiscovered gem this town is.
