Excuse my sacrilegion, but I really like the other designs. Universe of Energy is gone, what’s left is it’s corpse. The ribs and solar panels are great, but I’d rather them be left in the past in favor of a brand new piece of Future World architecture. If they stay, it’s just a cruel reminder of the past. The other two look both very Future World and very Xandarian at the same time, so I really like them and prefer them more. I’m down with whatever they choose

Problem is, they don’t understand architecture anymore. Space is a pretty facade stuck to a shed.

But EPCOT Center is dead.

Wanted to jump in... I've been on this thread since it first started, and I jump on 3-5 times a week to see the latest. I was at Epcot last weekend for the first time since construction started on the gravity building. As our tour bus pulled in my eyes were peeled for a glimpse of the building I have read so much...expecting the worst. Well, yes, the building is huge, no doubt. You see it right away, even though the coloring does sort of fade into the sky, you still can't miss the building.

But, by the time we got through the gate and got to SE, the building is now basically behind you. You don't see it anymore. As we progressed through the day, I have to be honest and say that I didn't notice the building once. Did I see it? I suppose I did, but it never registered in my mind at all. It wasn't until just yesterday (I was in Epcot on Saturday) that I thought about it again for the first time since I saw it from the parking lot.

So for those of you worried about this building, unless you're going out of your way to pay attention to it, I truly think your mind will erase it. Just my opinion, anyway.

And for the record, I was in Epcot for the first time in 1982 (11yo), and I've been there about 30 times between then and now. I am a HUGE Epcot fan.

It's a little weird to see this rear its head again years later. I feel like that was damage done when they were changing the rainbow paint job back to the original scheme.
Depends which version they go with :)

I mean, there's no way they're not just going with the version in the art they released at the Expo, right? I think we'd be seeing much different construction going on if it were either of those other two versions. Plus, of course, this being modern Disney, that would be the cheapest option.

I think since there's pics where the Milano is supposed to show up inside the queue, that's why we aren't seeing it on the outside and seeing the Nova Corps ship instead.

Also, I guess we're assuming the timeline for this attraction will be from the first film, BUT maybe it will be a timeline of the third one.....Xandar may be destroyed, but we could see some remnants and another superhero emerge (I'm no expert!)

I don't think that necessarily means anything, just look at what they're doing with the Millennium Falcon for Smuggler's Run.
