OMG!

 

Isn't this exactly what we are thinking about for Fort Worth's new and horribly built garages?

Are you guys being sarcastic?  That is sterile and dead looking to me.  It looks better at night, but the day time view looks like it would be a big dead spot in the middle of any downtown.

No, but of course not.  For what its worth, the garage has been awarded an A+Award by Architizer.  Good for OKC; a garage has been created that is functional and is an artistic structure of modern art in the same way that the Pier 1 tower is here.

 

You want to see dead: XTO Garage and the surrounding garages.

It just seems that we spend a lot of time knocking big, blank, pedestrian unfriendly walls that it seems strange that some are praising it.  I have a feeling the tone would be different if it wasn't hiding an ugly garage. 

 

Hey, to each his own.  Lovely wasn't the first word that came to mind when I saw it.  I agree that many of the garages downtown are just as ugly.

I seem to remember that the Bass garages were suppose to be painted ? And or decked out in color lights a few years ago ?  I may be mistaken.

My first impression was that it looked like a mid-century office building. Not beautiful as far as buildings go, but much better than most parking garages.
