The design looks nice, especially at night, but what kind of function does it have? 8/10

Extremely unique. However at daytime it almost looks like a smokestack. But really great at night. 8/10

Yuck. What a joke, this is over 300m yet under 40 floors? Please. This shouldn't even count as a skyscraper, it's like a CN Tower or Space Neddle that has a cage surrounding it. Absolutely horrible.

NO, its a real tower, it has a 5* hotel under construction in it and those light were just test, the light show is way better, the picture showing aspire tower in the morning is 3 years old and the inner blue facade wasnt there yet, oh and this so called cage of yours is real glass.

trust me this tower is way batter than what you think.

BTW the tower hosted the asian games torch at the top when it was here in Doha in 2006

Looks like a Sunsilk bottle here in the Philippines!

Nonetheless, breathtaking by night. I don't know by day......

8.5!

I don't like buildings that expose their internal organs through their outer skeleton, I find it gross ;-) This one, by day time, is quite an extreme case. I'm also wondering why the lighting scheme is not going right to the top or down to the base. It's strange as if unfinished. It does look good in some configuration, though I cannot say it's very original or ground-breaking. On average, it's still ugly in my opinion.
3.5/10
