    former OMA fan says:
  • i have never like his architecture.( mean koolhaas)

    e/. says:
  • so scary… so ugly!

    jojo says:
  • i think its considered an amazing architecture for a “design-constraint” country like Singapore due to its political… its sure a different approach as compared to the usual Singapore’s high rise residential housing…

    magnez says:
  • “Clarification from OMA – The Singapore tower is a design by OMA Partner Ole Scheeren. Unlike most architecture firms we are a collaborative office which works as a Partnership, Singapore Scotts Towers is by Ole Scheeren.”

    surely koolhas is better than this.

    april says:
  • This is is really amazing , so simple and new approach…I respect his designs more cuz i have visited OMA offices in Rotterdam after applying for a job their as a another “REM KOOLHAAS” Architect,but I had no working permit cuz Im lebanese talented architect. OMA is really amazing working there with a multicultural architects from overseas…
