According to wikipedia, Rafael Vinoly (which most of us known is the architect) and the firm is SLCE Architects, LLP constructed the building.

Can't wait until this is completed and everything extra is taken down. Then the 'less is more' aspect of the design will really be made clear!

Enlargment, can you see it? (it's not hard at all)




As a bonus, a panorama from there.

Elegant tower but I don't think it deserves to have the title of tallest roof height. Here is hoping the Nordstrom tower is not a lackluster design like the renderings released

I did say it was elegant. Everyone here loves the title of a supertall; well it is now a supertall with last jump, now if it could just stop there! everyone would be happy that it is and I will love it!

It will deserve to have the title of tallest roof height when it has the tallest roof height.
