if anything, they should've just stuck with the mayan idea and use that pattern and those materials for the entire building. but instead they thought that shiny curtain wall combined with ancient architecture was appropriate

I agree, its pretty ugly. It looks like a Lego Mayan transformer...

I kind of used to feel the same way about Heritage Plaza, somewhat still do. I always thought it looked like a building that got crapped on at the top. Although it stands out in Houston's skyline facing west, I was never really impressed by the architecture. The only thing i really can say I appreciate on this building is that it is not a plain flatop building like alot of them.

But all in all, we're not discussing Heritage Plaza here are we?
