Saw this on Pete's blog and, after watching the embedded video, I can't shake the feeling that it's so impossibly cheesy, so unbelievably naff that it must just be some ridiculous Birmingham City Council made up stunt.
Because if it isn't a stunt, if it isn't just someone taking the piss then we're about to see a huge and very expensive gleaming tower of pure shit erected in the skies of Birmingham.
It's not the design that bugs the hell out of me either; I'm all for innovative buildings. No, it's the tacking on of the theme park aspects of it that really annoys. Completely trivialising and juvenilising the whole thing.
