Spiky skyline

Right beside the elegant Cultural Center of the Philippines in Pasay City is a building which houses the radio station DZRH and the Aliw Theater. To tell you the truth, I already think that the building is horrendous and it's made even more so by that… that thing! I have no idea what it is. I always thought that it was just some attention-getting devise of Star City, an amusement park farther down the road. But the more I look at it, the more it looks like a radio antenna tower dressed up for Christmas. Or is it Halloween?

It looks odd but very eye-catching, perfect for the theme. You really HAVE to see it if you are passing by.

I agree with you -- it is very odd and I am not thrilled with it. Glad it's there and not here! Ü Great entry for odd shots! Come and see mine.

Sometimes it's a star or a wizard. MBC may look strange from the outside, but it's very simple inside, even boring.

I can see why it bothers you. we have lots of stuff like that around where I live. It also keeps things really interesting too!

Strange structures indeed! Makes you wonder what passes through some architects minds...

It looks like some kind of cirque du soleil performance area. I guess it's something people love or hate.

Kala said...

I'd say it looks like a Pumpkin exploded! Actually that taller building on the left looks quite interesting and scifi like. I wonder what the inside would look like with such an unusual shape.

"Louis" would hate to look at that site very often! Mercy! "Louis" votes for Halloween.... Great choice for Odd Shots, Hilda!
