Take your pick.

Architecture or nature?

It's just a matter of taste.

Except that it's very cultivated and there's nothing 'natural' to chose from.

Oh, sure, the leaves are pretty, but the slide option next to the stairway looks like a blast.

Did M.C. Escher design that building?

Rust stains don't help either. The steel and concrete construction all over America is aging, and I imagine a lot of lessons are being learned.

Good architecture blends with nature. Think of a nice, old quad. Bad architecture plops into nature in an inorganic and ugly way.

Oh but one embraces the other, Ann! We shouldn't have to choose.

Who cares about the nature? The architecture is amazing. Solid over void is an architectural form that goes back several millenia, and it never loses its inspirational power.

I was gonna say the building was butt-ugly so there is no contest.

NSC: That's an insult to butts.

Is that mildew under the eaves? Best tear the whole thing down before it spreads.
