To find the soul of a building you have to go inside the damn thing. Looking at the photos, the interiors of Hearst Tower appear to be spectacular, moving, and....okay, sensual.
That exterior tower? Well, pretty corny. It wil probably grow on us over the years like the SF Transamerica has. But don't confuse pretty photos of buildings that no human ever sees for the architecture.
TLDR. I like that they kept it real on the bottom floors though.
Rumor is that one of our local developers is talking with Foster about designing a tower here in Seattle.
People are over-thinking this way too much. It's just a glass and steel building like any other office building. So this one has diamond-shaped windows instead of rectangular windows. Big deal.
I saw this tower in NYC a few weeks ago. It definitely stands out from the rest and I thought was interesting to look at. But it didn't quite arouse me sexually. It's near Times Square, so maybe if that area was as seedy as it once was, it would be more arousing.
