Cant wait for these to rise and take their own individual forms! Just a quik question, I know nothing about construction methods, and am a little confused by Espacio. It seems to me like a few metal beams surounded by loadsa scaffolding, not really forming any 'skyscrapery' type shape. What is going on there? Are any of these projects on hold. Vallehermoso seem to be pretty quiet.

There is no one of the four projects in hold. What happens is that Repsol and Espacio began before and already they go fast. Mutua is working in the foundations and Vallehermoso is doing the hole for the tower. But the 4 are under construction.

The metallic structures are to do the portal and the hall of the tower.

Oh right, thanks Pedrillo. Yeah, just thought Espacio looked weird, but Repsol seems to be looking good.

My favourite of the designs is actually the Mutua. Wanna see that rise!

By the way, do you think that this is something you could actually do? I am asking you because I really like your drawings!

Por lo visto la Torre Repsol la consideran mejor los extranjerso que los propios españoles, curioso, xD.
