And why is this better than the Hedrick Fender 50's building? It's every bit as pink. Guess it must be structurally sounder. Glad the ugly period angels were saved at least. They are 50's FW history and not nearly as fugly as the TX Liberty topping the capitol in Austin--what a harpy.
I am not crazy about the looks of the new building either. It is part of a trend of "more is better". More colors AND more angles AND more variations. A building can start looking like junk pretty quick. Best examples? The new convention center building. ICK. The Chase building next to The Tower, ICK. And even the Family Law Center is way over-done. Too busy. Do a busy design OR busy colors but not both. I love the Family Law Center but had they exercised a bit more restraint it would be the finest building around, in my opinion. I am not saying I like plain, just not busy for busy's sake.
