Unless the "outer skin" is somewhat transparent, they're taking away quite a bit of window space for those inside the tower. I'd love to see the engineer's face when the architect shows up with this design. Hell, even an architect would have to stop himself at some point and think, "man, there's no way in hell this would ever work"

I think the top section will scare some people, they will think that the top section might blow off in strong winds or something like that.

Awful, random design, which makes even the abandoned WTC2 design look elegant. I've had enough of this stacked boxes concept. Hope it isn't the final one.

Seems like dozens of stacked boxes buildings have been proposed over the past decade or two but thankfully very few of them actually get built. I think at some point developers come to their senses.

Generally speaking stacked boxes aren't good. But this actually looks cool.

Is there a height restriction in place? I wouldn't be surprised if the height was increased .
