Jagged Architecture

Photo – building in Salford, taken by me

I hate the increasing trend to build tall buildings with bits sticking out like ragged jagged teeth, or as if part of an abandoned game of Jenga. The buildings look lob-sided and as if they might topple from being heavy on one side. People afraid of heights might be nervous if walking or working in the overhanging sections. The photo here is of one such building in Salford. Arthur Chappell

more and more people seem to like that experience, but like you, i don't like things sticking out or without support.

@hereandthere to me it is just an eyesore - it looks half built and half demolished - not aesthetically pleasing at all

What if the part that sticks out has to much weight and collapses.

@jstory07 I expect stress level testing will have been very high but it looks awful and half exploded and doesn't look or feel safe to be around

I do not like tall buildings and I would feel really unsafe working in those overhanging sections.
