Interesting, I never thought of it as a piano effect until you mentioned it. I like the dynamic and asymitric shape of this building as it looks quite different from different angles.

There are not many pictures of the various towers that come with the one above (although you can see some in the background ^) and if you want to find out more about them u can go here:
