A bunch of glowing crystals. How clever.

Snohetta and Kengo Kuma could probably be trusted to deliver worthwhile renditions of those projects.

Rex, Holl, Delugian Miessl, etc clearly did not give a shit.

REX : has the strongest argument.

Rex: I like the monolothic concrete base turning into an expanding glass volume, especially considering how the glass will reflect the surrounding water and environment.

Kengo: I think they have the best material quality. The wood planking fits the local surrounding and nautical influence best and the proposal has a more subtle effect.

Hussey: Strikes me as a great design...that could be placed anywhere. It doesn't connect with the site formally or materially well enough.

If I were to compare these to all the beautiful museums in the world, these are all EPIC fails.
