I wondered that myself when I was looking through this thread. At first I thought those posts were made by someone who got banned, but that's not the case. Maybe that's a way of replying while also being speechless?

I know this is off target for great buildings, but what do you think about this house?

I really love these two buildings u/c in Shanghai. Facades inspired by traditional Chinese patterns.



The right one will host a Conrad hotel and the left one a Jumeirah hotel.




To be completed later this year.
