It just seems that this forum is dominated by people who don't care about American skyscrapers as much as foreign ones. And how is this building normal? The design is normal but the function isn't, it's basically a whole university built into one building! That's something that's never been done before that I can remember.

And this building isn't normal btw?
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1159815, it's followed closer than this one in Chicago.
Well it's pretty clear this is a very international forum. I don't know if it's more international than SSP, but just going by the fact that there are a lot more international projects posted than "domestic" ones, you'd tend to think so.

Also, the U.S. was the place with the most skyscrapers until very recently. All these 200m+ and 300m+ towers are going up in some cities I'm sure I've never heard of, hence greater curiosity and pride for those whose countries are featured heavily on this forum; they've got new skylines forming whereas ours are only be slowly added to. And particularly from within the perspective of Chicago, a 143m building isn't the biggest news ever. And I'd have to agree that while the concept of the building is neat, it's been done in Tokyo before (the 204m Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower) in a much more daring way; this tower is nice, but it doesn't stray far from the postmodern shiny-glass-box idea.

Probably american users prefer SSP than SSC. The highrise section of the skyscraperpage forum is dominated with threads about buildings from Canada and the US.

Maybe I'm the only one but, I can't make up my mind as to wether I like or hate the facade of this building?

Fantastic project! You Yanks have always excelled in architecture. The modern stuff from NYC and Chicago is especially world class.
