    Hola a todos.. muy interesantes las opiniones. Yo opino que si es una ciudad con otro estilo arquitectonico por la epoca o cual sea la razon por la cual se contruyo asi como en las imagenes es hermosa, pienso que si se pudiese hacer algun edificio respetando la armonia de formas del entorno seria lo mejor. No se puede decir que este proyecto sea una mierda. No lo es… es quiza contrastante pero es el estilo de Zaha. Modernista e innovador. Creo que a pesar de todo se merece respeto, al fin y al cabo es Arte la Arquitectura. Pero lo tradicional tiene su propia belleza y nada que envidiar al moderno. Siendo las dos corrientes hermosas coinsido que esta maravilla deberia ir en algun lugar mas apartado… Excelente la idea pero es como invadir patrimonio de la humanidad, esa impresion me da.
    Muchas Gracias…

    Although I generally like Zaha’s architecture, I must agree with the criticism expressed by others here. Zaha likes bold architectural statements, but sometimes one should be more humble and respect the historical context. Have we lost the ability to build cities, instead of fashionable monuments? Every architect dreams of building a monument that will last, but does Zaha need this anymore? She is already a celebrity, so more humbleness wouldn’t do any harm to her success. Maybe she thinks that this is what the clients expect of her: Sculptural monuments! Maybe the problem isn’t her, but the client with his inappropriate expectations. Maybe Zaha should not have done this job at all.
