I have to say it looks very out of place there BUT it's a fantastic structure! I would love something like this in Seattle!

Not so much out of place. There is another tower not very far from it, called Kista Science tower (not visible in the picture). Also, some other towers are planned to be built in the same area. The area might become a La Défense of Stockholm some day.

Love this building! The cladding is really nice - it looks like a more contemporary Beetham Tower (Manchester UK)... The interior shots look really good too, very modern!

Not the main entrance we se in the picture. However, it is the building that is shinny, modern, yet subtile and quite simple.

The cladding has already been spotted and nicknamed as insipiring.

I first really hated the shape of this building, but I slightly want to rectify that. looking good!
And the cladding is indeed spectaculair.

That hight is really cool! But it’s a shame the plinth and the entrance are boring and ‘closed’.
