Actually, they were enclosed with glass in the original renderings. They were called "conservatories" and were to be used for special functions, according to the tenants' wishes. Later alterations to the design made the tower shorter, and just left the diagonal trusses.

I just don't know what I think about thsi one

sheesh....really odd, it doesn't work for me...it seems like three smaller buildings would have been better, like WFC or something
it was built before BOC i think.

The Bank of China was topped out in 1988 and opened in 1990, some 2 years before Central Park.

Here are more photos.

ive never really liked it that much. Bank West is a much better tower.
CP is to bland, and looksout of shape (And the metal bars/pipes are not doing the building any favours)

everytime i drive down the freeway and see the skyline and when i look up at the buildings i get goosebumps all over. I love this city, such a nice place to be. I could live in other magnificant cities aroun dthe world but i would always call this place my home! Perth is still a young city so there is more time for greater buildings!

An overall decent skyscraper, but even better because it's in Perth. I give it a 9/10.

i do like this one but if only the cross struts and spire that every one seems to disprove of were a much more dominate feature it would be great tower
still so sleek and impressive so get 8.5

A bit too robotic in my taste. I wouldn't like to have it in front of my window. But I can't say it's bad, the shape is original and it CAN look quite nice.
