Telefónica building

This is Telefonica's corporative building. It's located at Plaza Italia, beside the Mapocho river. Telefonica is a Spanish company dedicated to telecommunications. The building is 140 m high and has been criticized for its similarity with a mobile phone... Architecture is a type of art and art is subjective, so: Do you like the mobile phone-looking-building?

Oh my! Yes that is very clever. But if you hadn't pointed out the similarity, I honestly wouldn't have noticed! I need to go wake up! Looks like you get a lot of cloudy days over there.

Really cristina? I saw that right away but was wondering if it was on purpose or by accidnet that it looked that way. I like it personally.

I actually think it's a good idea, and like Eric noticed its' shape immediately.
Ring, ring! Excuse me, my building's ringing!
