not bad at all...looks like a typical post modern design and the setbacks look good near the top...just seems to work in this tower but I can live without the X bracing on the windows, luckily it doesn't overpower the design....8/10

The diamonds running up the building are a bit excessive, but fortunately they aren't too noticeable. The Wuhan WTC looks great in that first pic, the crown is a nice subtle touch to a nice tall skyscraper. Not that it's anything special, but it's decent enough to get a 7.5/10

The facade is very nice with the colours of green and white, pure Asian style, but the cross stitching is not very attractive.

7.5/10

Pleasant looking but looks a wee bit cheap. Although it is tall I feel that it could be a little taller and the facade more outstanding.

Reminds me a little of Baiyoke Tower in Bangkok.

7/10 - Good height, helped by the indentations in the sides and the small setbacks near the top.
I like the idea of the strip of glass running up the facade, but it really could do without the crosssticching, and the detaling of the top looks a bit cheesy. Plus, the facade is a bit bland. I'm also not quite sure about the base...

Yes Raffles, "a wee bit cheap" looking.

Although the top looks messy, I do like the little bit of green glass cladding near the top that continues down the ediface with its cross stitching (or X bracing).

I am partial to its vertical setbacks on and near its corners.

Out of the 4 pics posted, my favourite is the 3rd pic looking up from street level.

A kind 6.

Not as bad as the other Top 100 building located in Wuhan, but not by much. Another completely jumbled, ackward PoMo mess. There seems to be absolutely no rhyme or reason to its looks, no historical context is conformed to whatsoever, even though various historical attributes are evident. My guess is that the architect who designed this building had little to no formal training.

4.5/10

A decent shape, but the concrete isn't good.
