  1. The human size is lovely, and the materiality is amazing. This, I believe, will become a fantastic hub for life in the city. This is what architecture should aspire to in the present day.

  2. I normally like Zaha Hadid, but I’m afraid they’ve lost the plot since her death. This appears to be a Frank Ghery model rather than anything Zaha Hadid would have made.

  3. It is not under construction, as the title suggests. They actually just won the competition. This is a competition entry that will be altered substantially now that they have won…

  4. There is no human scale, no materiality, and no creation. This structure looks like it belongs on Mars. This is the sort of structure that epitomizes all that is wrong with architecture today.

  5. As fascinating as it might appear, this is transforming cities all over the world into cities devoid of local links. It’s nearly impossible to say that this is a Chinese venue. This type of architecture can be found anywhere and belongs nowhere. At the very least, I’d like to see some local elements incorporated into this global architecture.

  6. Shenzhen is strange because it was a small fishing village with a population of 30000 people in 1980. It now has a population of 12.5 million people.
    A thousand years from now, historians will be writing books about this time in Chinese history.
