and honestly design 2 looks more like a lotus flower than the first one. Which imo is just a few big blocks stacked on top of one another.

"Lotus" is an old name, they'll change the name. Actually the design is based on the rice tree - which is one of traditional icon of Vietnam, not the lotus:

Hanoi skyscraper to be world’s 11th tallest

Property developer Kinh Bac Corp will soon start building a 400-meter-high skyscraper in Hanoi which is expected to be the world’s 11th tallest.

It has submitted 24 designs for the US$1-billion, 100-story Lotus tower in Tu Liem District to city authorities for approval.

Construction is scheduled to begin this quarter.

The building, to come up on a four-hectare site, will have separate residential, commercial, and entertainment areas, office space for lease, luxury shopping mall, and a six-star hotel.

Kinh Bac chairman Dang Thanh Tam said among the designs provided by London-based architect Foster and Partners, his company prefers an energy-efficient one with hanging gardens.

The construction schedule will be known once the approval is received.

The building was originally planned to be built by Japan’s Riviera Corp in 2009 at a cost of $500 million and with just 15 floors.

However, the company scrapped the plans last year due to financial problems.

11th tallest? even with only the already finished buildings over 400m it won't be place 11, not even to talk about when some more are finished before this will be. Still awesome project of course.

They both look awful. Hanoi is at the stage where it just needs more skyscrapers. No point having some alien pod-like supertall if it will stick out like a sore thumb.

Not really. I point to Riyadh. Two really tall buildings that look out of place because they stick out like a sore thumb. But I don't fault you for wanting supertalls in your country. We all do

Render 2 in my opinion is very exaggerated.
Render 1 remind me City Of Capitals in Moscow.
