you've made the same point about constructive criticism several times.
you're usually pretty measured in response Knight but not all are.
constructive criticism is good but oftentimes the criticism isn't stated constructively.
cross-posting and large photos can be annoying, but more annoying are those who bitch about other's photos and contribute little else.

I like the look of it so far, honestly. I think the copper brown color works well, and the original golder color might have looked gaudy.

There seems to be some texture in the panels right? IMO it has a brick type feeling from afar.

The facade is looking sharp. Much better than what the drawings indicated it would look like.

Yes, or see pg. 24.


Is it really 343ft tall? For some reason to me it looks like 250 ft. I know it's like 600 ft long. A massive boat. I've been tough on it, but hopefully, it surprises me.

Rude...that said, I actually like the picnic basket building much more than this one.

I love the people on this forum that have deluded themselves into thinking they like it. Hah. Enjoy. Philadelphia, you really deserve this building.
You obviously have an agenda here with 30 odd posts in this thread and no others. I can't figure it out though. It's too deep in Penn's campus for typical NIMBYism, and while you come off as a sad teenager, I can't understand why anyone would get so hung up on this building.

Remember how everyone was dragging Liberty's new building in Camden for having a yellow facade? I think this is a similar situation, what we see on this building so far is not the finished product.
