    It is really ok, history will be the final judge.

    i never heard of Esplanade being called that.. all along i heard of houseflies and durians only.

    the new building looks like 3 sticks of satay bunched together.

    the building reminds me of a few things:
    1. 911
    2. honeycomb stacked in squares
    3. pigeon square holes
    4. tetris
    5. "Hey look there's a kit-kat in my cone?!"

    I'd like to see them make transparent floors for the bottom units, you know, like the CN Towers in Toronto.
    I'm sure some will pay extra for that -- imagine getting out of bed in the morning, rubbing your eyes and suddenly realising you're 'floating' 30 metres off the ground

    when you don't allow things to happen people complain, when you allow things to happen people complain ... some people just love to complain and give singaporeans a bad name ... yawn ... anyway the structural concept might be bold but it certainly doesn't look like anything new in the technological aspect. on first look it's quite a clever concept which capitalizes on surrounding city view.

    This could fall in the same category. Also, I have my doubts if it will stay up. Just doesn't give me that level of confidence I expect in a skyscrapper. It almost reminds me of Salvador Dali's elephants - top heavy, thin legs for support
    think that somewhere near Singapore poly.. the singtel building almost the same design.

    correct, nearer to the ITE, but still can be seen from sp. another thing to note, tho the building is standing there for many year, the number of levels poking out is very much lesser then the one which is goin to be build, the load factor is different by many times i guess...

    Well, now buildings in Singapore getting more "high-klass" with international renowed architects to design the buildings.

    Not only Orchard turn got the Kebab, Harbour front having this wavy condo and not forgetting the 4-5 million The Sail....

    The architect has spoken!!

    I am all for progress and bold developments. But in my view, the building quite ugly leh. Maybe my views will change when I see the real thing. Can't picture it that well at the moment from the picture that they posted.
