This will give you some insight into the minds of the architects or would it be the minds of those who accepted the design and signed on the dotted line.
You could initially ask this question to the first person, which is the architect. Then the second person in line would be the one who accepted the design to have this building see the light. What were they thinking?
In many ways, there is the freedom of artistic expression which should be given precedence. Would you say that it is good if it makes your stomach turn or you become dizzy by just looking at it? Are some of the architects out on a revenge of some sort?
The questions keep on flowing as there are more questions than: What were they thinking? For example, can you categorize any of the architecture built in our world today?
It is the upside down that does not really make sense. If it is called an installation does that make it a better deal?
Now if you find the upside down a bit alright, there is also the inside out that could be a little bit on the alright side one would hope. It might work for Lloyds of London where all the services were places on the outside. This included pall the service ducts, pipes and everything else in between.
It might have worked for this building, but it might just not cut it again. In this instance it at least slots in with a category – high tech.
If you want to continue the saga of strange architecture, you should follow the route of the strange and more bizarre. The questions still echo loudly as to why and why and one more why these building even make it to groundbreaking stage.
One thing you should admire about these building is that the engineers were incredible innovative to be able to work out the “skeleton” for it to actually stand up as a building.
It is just the most incredible reality that will stare you in the face for the longest period, as money was spent on putting it there – in fact millions was spent erecting it, so no one in his or her right mind would want to tear it down again.
This is definitely an opinion piece only, because clearly these buildings have been approved by someone out there who felt that it deserved the spot in the sun. The Lloyds of London building is probably the best of all here, and should probably not be here. However, it is an example of the best inside outside building.
What is most bizarre is that these are not models or concepts, but that these are actual buildings. They have been created by design and not by accident.
To concede, one should not call it bizarre, but rather just a bit strange or different.
