Awesome or just because you can doesn't mean you should?

With the tower's narrow base flaring up and out, and the definite 'twist' in the tower itself, it looks like it's paying homage to the tornado from "The Wizard of Oz."

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

I wonder just what wind force parameters the design was run through on the computer. Who ever bank-rolled this project certainly has faith in the science of computer design.

You'll never get me up in that thing.

Uh. That doesn't sound right
For Christianity, by identifying truth with faith, must teach-and, properly understood, does teach-that any interference with the truth is immoral. A Christian with faith has nothing to fear from the facts

Not nearly as terrifying from this angle:


Vancouver is a beautiful city in a great location. Not all the amenities I'd want in a city, but if I were offered an apartment in that building I don't think I'd turn it down.

I'm sure the developers have got their money out of it. By the time it needs serious attention to keep it up, they will be long gone. It claims to be based on the Flatiron building in NYC, but that is intrinsically in stable equilibrium on a base the same shape as the upper floors. All it (Flatiron) needs is gravity and concrete of the correct compressibility. Not so with the Vancouver building.

I like the green space on top of the surrounding buildings
Okay... There's all kinds of things wrong with what you just said.
