I don't think I like this, but to make a final judgement I'd have to experience it, and that's not likely.

Maybe not to the scale of a Bond villain's lair, but not too far off :shock:

Maybe post "ridiculouslism". My first thought was WHY? Hardly sits in peace with its environment. Think the answer is because you can if you have enough money. However money doesn't give you wisdom.

Phwoah!!

Conceptually I think it's awesome although there are a couple of elements which I'm not so goo-goo-gah-gah over. But being there might present it differently. Plonked in the middle of a (man made) lake is a bit wierd - personally I'd prefer it half on land/half on water, if it absolutely required that water supply for some reason.

As for sticking a spaceship in the middle of a forest, what's wrong with that? It may (probably does) have a minimal impact on the environment. Would it be better if it was painted brown and green? Why limit the aesthetics of what's built to its surroundings?
