That's not at all going to look like another aging 80's relic in Van's decrepit downtown 😒

So many modern architects seem incapable of recognizing how their projects will look 30 years from now

And you know? Come on, that's bollocks. Have you seen the generic crap that's going up all over Vancouver of late? This is miles better.

I sympathize [deeply] with this complaint in general, but I think you're off on this one. My gut says this will turn out great.

For the most part architects know when their projects won't age well, be it to issues of design or materials used in construction. But in most cases the client needs to be wowed/pleased in order to get the project built. And an architect's number one priority is to get their stuff built.

Why 3D printing did not contribute to saving 19 Century building ornamentation that is being destroyed (renovated) all over the world? Developers refuse to restore buildings to the original spec and architectural commissions are going along with developers in helping to destroy the beautiful buildings all over EU and US.
I see it where I live and it pains me to see before and after shit this fuckers create.

P.S. Cool cement building.

That looks like a place that could handle some long term absentee ownership.

It is not finished yet already looks dated. Horrible, gimmicky concoction.

It looks even worse in person. Reminds me of that gun from Halo that had all the spiney things sticking out of it.

Looks like one of those Alessi kitchen utensils that were cool back in the 1990s.
