Well, unless you tour the building yourself, including of course the interior, you can never say. The only thing you can be sure of is that, bizarre looking buildings are ultimate attention magnets. They may or may not be the most convenient places for their occupants, but at least they make a difference to inquisitive onlookers’ eyes.
