  1. What a horrible design! It looks worse than a shopping mall. They should have muzak playing outside. I would not let Daniel Libeskind plan a birthday party, much less let him plan a new town. He's the absolute worst!

  2. ......what in the world. Did none of the architects talk to each other while doing this? Absolutely no teamwork in those designs >:/
