What an amazing design for a building! It does look like glass crates stacked on top of each other. It is a shame that no balconies exist.
I would have guessed that it was around twenty to thirty years old. Sure look a bit on the ugly side in this setting.
Very different! I don't think that I'd like to be a floor or two below the top cubicles because I'm afraid that the shadows would darken the interiors.
Very nice shot! I really like it!Have a nice day! :-)
They could be nice, but not on the coast at Cascais.
Oh, a monster it is!!! Hard to imagine how they could build something like this -- and it is indeed a shame that there are no balconies!! Those are the main things I look for in a hotel and particularly one near a beach! Really sad take on the architecture these days! But a great post nevertheless, JM! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!Sylvia
It is very modern and somehow looks out of place. I wonder what was torn down to put up this building.
It almost looks like it might topple over in a strong wind!
While it looks good now, I'm not sure this building will stand the test of time. I think traditional architectural style is the best. Think of all those 1970s monstrosities on the French coastlines. :S
I'm sure that view is amazing, but, well - not my type of architecture, I'm afraid.
@Jarat: That's exactly my point! They have torn down an emblematic hotel from the 60's because of... visual pollution! OK, the hotel looked ugly now, but instead of modernizing it they build this agressive condo that can be seen from everywhere! I have to say the interiors are fabulous and each apartment costs a fortune but all were sold at once! Economic crisis??? What crisis? Definitely not for everyone.
The architect was inspired by Tetris, his childhood favorite game, I am sure. Here I have recently seen the building inspired by cola can, probably saved the architect from morning hangover.I love your "Decay" series.
Maybe it's a Transformer! Interesting design.
Weird is all I can say. they just don't fit in do they. MB
more and more buildings are done in this fashion.
Super moderno,tem algo que lembra peças de legos! :)Eu gostei muito do seu post Decay, as cores na parede, bem diferente!Léia
Mmm this looks like an architects plaything.
wonderfully playful, like a child with building blocks. nicely captured.
This reminds me of some soviet piece of architecture, but at least that was some decades ago...
This looks like some giant puzzle - you have to figure out how the giant pieces interlock
You're right, no balconies! That's just...a bad idea so close to the water and all.
Great piece of architecture. Beautiful shot.Sydney - City and Suburbs
