More seriously, what this building makes me think is what I have long thought, which is that modern architecture is, a lot of it, about what kind of aesthetic experiences architects had when they were little kids.

That’s what it looks like to me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Good to have the arse of the ship there, to show how big this Big Thing is.
