if that's a mass damper like in taipei 101, but open to the view from exterior (probably behind sick walls of glass) it would be just amazing. the overall design reminds me of the greenland center in dalian though. although it is weird i really love its uniqueness. but yeah design is probably fake anyways.

so it is still far away from being prep, when we first need to see the stuff being demolited. i still hope that we at least see the site being cleared during 2013, but we will see.

Not my favourite design. The other two designs we've seen were 10 times better.

completely agree, but it is not bad either. i think good renders of a nice cladding could redeem the design quite easily.
