I wonder if they will build anything on the site of the 'temporary UN Building' (white shack in front of this tower)

It'll be restored to park space.

There is something I don't like about this tower. Kinda looks like 3 pipes next to each other.
And this thing on top... It's much better without it:

But the building can't go without it. And at least they made it as continuation in the same shape as the rest of the tower. I'm glad they didn't decide to just put a box on there.

true, but this isnt exactly an elegant solution either. Still a nice building though.

This looks like a Trump-ed up, 80s version of the McGraw-Hill Building.

Yeah I think it's a good looking building by all means.

This building is really badly integrated with street, it seems as if it is a little bit ashamed of himself.

Yeah those steps should have been extended across the entire front side of the building. I don't like that pink wall.

Most often, people would sit on the steps, specially when there are some protests going on along Dag. The pink colored planters serves as a fence on the property.

I think the whole point of UN buildings is to fence them off, so they would NOT be inviting for pedestrians and protesters.
