NY builds no more boxes than any other city. Have you seen Canary Wharf, Frankfurt or Chicago? Those are financial centers like NY that require large boxy floorplates.

But then why does everybody here talk about a box if it is no box? That's rather puzzling

the main building is a box but there is one feature about the box that is apparently unique and that's what everyone is talking about.

Kanto automatically likes the building render or not, when its associated with box and tall.

From the previous posts you can figure out that these feature will be transition from box to the circle. It is the only guess Robert didn't denied so I take it this is the correct one.


Something like that, just much thinner?
