The needs of the constructed community are extensive , A building like this can enhance a community. Fossils like yourselves havent developed a sensibility to these type of forms. Its like when a child draws a house and it always has a pitched roof, rectangle door and square windows. We are programmed early in life to identify with these shapes and reject those which do not conform. Buldings like this make us uneasy. But I find it exciting. Nodody ever says that this is the "solution" to architecture but lets no thwart the effort. How can we ever develop a context for this type of building when they are constantly shunned by people like yourselves. I particularly don't care for this project or Ghery's work at all, but I embrace it as do many people.
The world needs narcism and show offs, we like when they win and especially like it when they fall. As far as your cultural insecurity, that is so hypocritical. If you weren't so insecure about your culture you would allow others to exist on sure ground.
