6.5/10

This building has too many things going on at the same time. The base looks interesting but totally unrelated to the tower, which is decent but mediocre. It just doesnt go together.

Not so great. I like the B tower slightly more, but again the base doesn't fit the building. 5/10

Seems like architecture in Wuhan is a mish-mash of different styles in the same building. The towers themselves look really nice, but the base really doesn't belong with the rest of the buiding.

I don't like cheap knock-oof architecture like this at all. Obviously the guy who designed this was using various US towers as his inspiration. Namely 191 Peachtree in Atlanta, and the Federal Courthouse in Cleveland.


6.0/10 only because it looks pretty good compared to alot of the crap getting built in the secondary Chinese cities.

A cheap rip-off of a postmodern classic:



And the other one is a copy of this:



China has potential, but there's too many of these cheap reproductions of other skyscrapers. C'mon China! You have such a unique style, you should use it to create unique buildings!

LOL You got to be kiddin' Jian Yin Building was completed in 1998, one year before Cleveland's Federal Courthouse Tower's construction started. The Cleveland building was completed in 2002, four years after the Wuhan tower.

Haha Those Americans. Most of your East Coast cities are lame copies of European cities. everytime I see Washington's Capitol on TV I have to laugh and tell my girlfriend: Look! it's the St. Paul's Cathedral. LOL
