I am new to Switzerland, so I was unaware that this was a relatively new installation.

I think it looks great. General opinion here seems to go along with the trend of people hating everything new. And as sure as night follows day, people will grow to love it.
I wonder who has been paying for this awesome installation.

Err... What so special about the crane?

Something deep that I can think of is that it does not harass the people.
The crane doesn't make 120K a year.

Somehow I don't think its really human.

Re: Opinions on the Zürich " crane"

Was there something about it being a Nazi-crane or something (not that a crane could hold political views or be a member of a political party).

Because it's right arm was raised?

Now you're really trying hard to be offended by inanimate objects.

That right-armed salute spoke volumes.

That combined with SVP's relentless support of this project leave no doubt in my mind as to what the intention is.
