Yup, he was not too good at this "tall" thing. The forms are not so bad. But the materials, the proportions, the details...not good. FLW doing a skyscraper just doesn't even sound right.

It looks ugly closeup but the effect it has from a distance seems effective.

Very good with the huge amount of angles it has, and it's shape. The facade is too plain though.

7/10

Wasn't this building declared unsafe? I heard it's just used for storage now.

It does have some interesting features to ponder over and some nice textures. I mean, even the spire is textured! Because of its unboringness-> 8/10

Interesting. The farther away you get from it, the more modern and newer it looks, but as you get close, looks like it needs a good bath. Neat design though. 8/10.
