I like the Louisville skyline.
It's not New York or Chicago, sure, but it's got a few tall buildings that stand out nicely against the lowerland around them. And it's got the classic advantage of having water off of which the reflections make for great photos
But the above photo (it's photoshopped, of course) would throw that whole skyline right out of whack - big, contemporary monstrosity all on the far right messing everything up.
That monstrosity - which I'm guessing Ame and the rest of my family already know - is called Museum Plaza and is a building proposed to be developed in the River City over the next few years.
It's a freaky building that is composed of a number of separate towers that would house a hotel, office space, a museum, private residences, and public park space a third of the way up . Check out the architecture firm's explanation of the plans.
Thankfully, it looks like there were some problems with the financing, and the newest update suggests everything is solidly on hold.
Generally, I'm okay with contemporary architecture, but this one just looks awful.
It's a contemporary turd, and I'll be happier if it gets flushed.
