Holy Mutha of God

I'm speechless. Fortunately, James Howard Kunstler is not.
"Can you fail to be impressed by the malignant stupidity of this building proposed for downtown Louisville, the 61-story Museum Plaza, designed by Rem Koolhaas's Office of Metropolitan Architecture?... Its attitude to its urban context -- just off Louisville's Main Street -- is so disrespectful that the context is left out altogether in the rendering above. You'd think all that remained of Louisville a few years from now is a post-atomic-blast hardpan desert."

when I saw that thing I was thinking that was [one of] the design[s] to replace the WTC. which may have actually been kinda cool. However, I agree that downtown Louisville is not ready for this cuboidal monstrosity.
