One of my all time vaforites! A great building for a great institution... It realy stood out in a time where big atriums where not that common and the idea of that glass, metal and concrete cage sheltering those trees from the urban jungle outside was quite poetic...

When I saw constructions in Valencia Spain at the first time, they made me thunderstruct. They are very beautiful and modern. That's architecture of future.

That's what makes it cool!
Also, it's a residential tower, you don't need a cavern of a lobby.
