Memorial Hermann Hospital

Recommended Posts

It's one of the least architecturally pleasing buildings, to put it nicely, ever built, in my opinion. The off-center crown, in particular, gives me an intense urge to fix it, or demolish it.

It makes you want to get up there and just move stuff around doesn't it?

 

I agree, it's annoying as heck to look at because of its obvious imperfections that never had to be.

There are a few other structures that make me want to tear them down, but nothing comes close to this one. It brings out the worst in my obsessive compulsive tendencies.

Frank Lloyd Wright was quoted as having used profanity when expressing his opinion of the Shamrock Hilton (now long since demolished).  I didn't like that building either, but at least it had some interesting and over-the-top history associated with it.  The MemorialHermann Tower is way worse.  I see it every day from my balcony near Uptown and it annoys me every time.  It's an embarrassment to Houston.  

 

MetroNational has put up a bunch of ugly buildings in their big patch of land out there.  Makes me wonder if the family that owns it all has a child that they gave the design contracts to, without concern for aesthetics.
