    n me, because I like it.  One of the things I find most irritating about US urban spaces is the lack of imagination, with block after block of concrete and steel and glass boxes, that vary largely only in dimensions.  The rest of the world is out there taking bold architectural strides, with giant steel and glass beehives and faberge eggs of buldings, all sorts of innovative design, and the US seems to have but a meagre handful of very large buildings that weren't mainly designed simply to be monotonously cost effective and utilitarian.
