is up to something like that.

Well, it has the character of a showcase design, like the bloated showcars you'd see on an exhibition. It shows what's possible thanks to new technology and design methods. You know it likely won't look like that if it ever enters a market, but it inspires, impresses and has potential to let more interesting designs enter the mainstream.

I'd be happy to see some of Eagle Tower's elements on a new luxury tower in the area or elsewhere, as we've read there's a lot to come. I think this has some inspiring power that clearly will affect future projects. The beginning of new ornamentation is already there and its about time, architecture literally means "the _art_ of building/construction".

What came to mind for me was this enormous tower thing someone proposed for the City of Los Angeles as a monument to the city which had wings and such. It was very gothic and massive thing.



In 1999, Brett-Livingstone Strong -- who has been called a modern day Michelangelo...by himself -- designed a 350 ft angel sculpture to sit on a 750 ft. tower-of-babel-esque platform that would "house galleries, shops, several small nondenominational chapels, a 5,000-seat concert hall and a revolving theme restaurant."

That's 1100 ft total, taller than the Library Tower, which would have made it the new tallest structure west of the Mississippi.
