Is this a joke? Supposedly "black" architecture that looks like a giant cock? What's next for black architecture - a building shaped like a watermelon?
Dude, it's John Henry's hammer.
I thought it looked like a hammer.
Definitely a hammer.
It'll work. Pittsburgh has a high concentration of African-Americans in its urban area. Do you know if the building will be adjacent to the 'hill district', where many of Wilson's plays are set?
Yeah, to a Seattlite, everything looks like a cock.
And it looks like, er, a giant white cock. And futuristic—for a playwright essentially concerned with history. This is the exact wrong design. The departure point for the building should've been the old house that we meet in the first play of the cycle, Gem of the Ocean (hello Ms. Rashad!) and whose demolition sits at the heart of the last play, Radio Golf.
I don't care who designed this aluminum turd—it should be razed.
It looks like a bullet train. I see motion. I hear the voice of Schooly D rap “am I black enough for ya?”

I actually think it looks like a Wahl Beard Trimmer. A very trendy one, probably one that would be available at Nordstrom or Rudy's as opposed to Bartell's.
it represents what they built after they knocked down all the old buildings in the plays
where's the whole foods?
I saw the giant cock too. But I am a cock hungry fag.
It's what the architects think black people want for the future:
-to be white
-to keep their giant cocks
-to be robo-perfect
If it's a hammer, why is there a testicle hanging out down there at the end of it?
