6/10 the plainess of the rest of the building doesn't match the details on the top

8/10 - Not bad at all...

The spire of the taller tower is especially nice - it flows naturally from the tower, since it has the same light blue glass and silver metal, while the curved corners provide a really nice contrast, and the set backs help it reach for the sky. The roof on the smaller tower is also an admirable attempt to move beyond the flat top that flows well from the building beneath it.

Both towers have a nice interplay between the smaller sections of blue glass and the larger blocks of metal; their facades seem to really be able to dance with the light, and I like the lightng at night.

BUT...the towers could use a set back or two (the shorter one, in particular, is a bit bulky), the roof of the smaller one is still a bit flat, and a stronger contrast between glass and metal (a darker blue, perhaps?) would make them even more striking.

Overall, though, they're crisp and elegant...

8/10. At first it looks like a Jin Mao copycat, but I realised the roofting design does have significant differences wich create a visual effect I have not seen before.
