7.5/10 It looks very good from one side (the smooth one), but I don't like it from the other side.

I gave it 9, but only because I'm a Finn. If I were in a more objective position, I would probably give it 8. What I like about Itämerentori are the colours (red Cor Ten steel) and that it fits in amazingly well with its surroundings. I don't know how it shows in the pictures, though.

I think the colours in the photos are fine, really tasty. I also think it looks just slim enough. Yet another 8.5 goes from me to Finland

Due to the towers thin shape and small-section facade (and immediate area) the tower looks much bigger than its actual height (IMO).. really like it from some angels, although from others looks a little bit dated. Overall mind Its a different look, it works well and is very European, hehe .. 8/10
