Just in case you forget which city this is…
That building… to the left (zoom)… the one that spells out CINCINNATI in big letters made of angled panels… that’s the new expansion to our convention center.
That lettering is apparently a part of the final design, not just a happenstance temporary byproduct of construction scaffolding.
That’s not all. The color scheme of the Cinergy Center plays strongly on its Cincinnati home and includes clay or brick color to represent the soil along the Ohio River, which will progress into the indigos and blues and greens of the river along the main concourse. (source)
I suppose the saving grace here, is that there aren’t too many vantage points where you can see this eyesore. Though a passing comment made me realize, perhaps this is the new HOLLYWOOD of the midwest.
