Sharp glasses and fish-bone opened designs are ugly and cruel.

My kind of design is, pretty and slim curving light green glasses.

I will create it so, till it becomes the right shape.

This is not a terrorism or meant to confuse the people down, by the way. . .

I have always been amazed by tall atriums. Too bad many of them are not opened tot the general public, specially Lloyds of London

is Lloyds of London an office tower?
with the stand alone clock at the bottom of the lobby it looks like a train station.

Berlin central station. I think opened a few years ago. Before that a older railway station. A bad picture of the place unfortunately.

The japanese atriums are impressive

Hennepin County Government center in Minneapolis is open to the public and has an atrium all the way to the top which is one of my personal favorite atriums:

Calatrava's BCE Atrium here in Toronto. I took these pictures this past summer when there was an art installation in place:

Deutsche Bank Place in Sydney has a narrow full-height atrium with glass lifts which rises 150m. These photos were taken by Muse (RIP):
