Not bad, but the base and crown don't really fit with the rest of the building, and luckily we're not rating interiors because that one's crap, too tacky...

A terribly dated design. Is there proof that this wasn't actually designed in the 60's? The building looks nice from one angle, and like banal crap from the other two. Also, I have never been a fan of these "flying saucer" restaurant things placed on top of highrises. Yuck!


5.5/10

I don't like some of the ones like these. There are just too many.

I don't mind it so much. The globe at the top is rather unique, though the base doesn't fit with it.

6.5/10 - The curved section of blue glass curtain wall is really sharp, and the globe looks nice at night. The combination of shapes also has definite possibilities.
Probably the biggest problem is that the stone sections of the facade, which are most of it, are, except for the striped sections near the curtain glass, very dull and poorly done - the windows, once again, look like holes in a cheese grater! It would have looked a lot better if they'd used the contrasting strips of glass and stone over the rest of the facade, and perhaps make them vertical, or had metal mullions, or something...And I'm afraid that globe doesn't look so nice during the day - maybe it should have been faceted, made of the same glass on the facade?

absolutely ghastly... to think that it was built in 1999?!!

bland facade, irritatingly shiny and passe blue glass, and messy bunch wires arranged into a ball at the top. the building is much uglier on the outside than the already tacky inside.
