nice photo...I like the tiered balconies...some fairly large container plants observed!

Very different kinds of new!

I like the "pattern" this design creates.

Randy said...

Excellent design.

Very interesting! I wonder how much privacy there is from one balcony to the next.

It is difficult to mix old and new and sometimes it ends up great. Not sure if it does here but I like the angle!

I love the angle in this picture and the architecture is superb!

Nice from your down angle. But I still prefer the old-old in general.

Jack said...

Your photo makes this new building seem quite attractive. I wonder if it seems as appealing from other angles.

"New" has many meanings, doesn't it?

Interesting photo and interesting kind of 'new'.

Not my kind of architecture. But it does make for an interesting photo! :)

Great angle indeed, VP!

Gunn said...

I guess it must be a fantastic view from these balconies.

And the sky above continues to be new as well, every day. Interesting architecture indeed. Please have a good Wednesday.
