Better pictures would give a nicer impression of this building. It looks much nicer in real life.

8/10

huh THIS a Calatrava design!!! Mmmm probably before he went for his now typical architectue style... still like the building though: 7.5

yeah I almost could''t believe Calatrava did design the tower...SOM says enough though (not making it any better...)

Santiago Calatrava is not the architect of the building, SOM is. Calatrava did an atrium in the project (and its a stunning work) and nothing more. He had nothing to do with the architecture of the towers.

Facade is good, but I only like the slim side. From the broad side it looks like a pair of Siamese twins that have to play second fiddle to the Canada Trust Tower.

these(this) do(does) look like conjoined twins, and though the design is unique, it looks a bit akward. also proportions seem a bit off, even though that makes it look sorta cool. gotta give points for the facade and for the separation into two parts at the top. this tower would look cool lost in manhattan.

6.5/10
