I will pile on as well!
This tower appears to have at least 5 facade treatments (plus a minor variation on the lower visible section). This destroys any sense of unity that the relatively simple shape gives it. I do not fathom how it could be underrated.

I agree. Just stick to 1 or 2 facades would be better.

Indeed, you would have to think reaaaaally bad of it to underrate it

By the way, I really like the one in Boston, and thanks to the picture posted here I got the GTC right a few days ago

6 replies in a row calling it ugly? Didn't expect so much backlash...


These leaning towers in Madrid are underrated

I'd like to nominate every International Modernist skyscraper ever built. They truly deserve more respect. Like, right now, otherwise it will come naturally in the future when they will begin to be missed and whacky glass shapes become outdated.

Imo the Wanda East Port Project towers in Dalian are underrated.
The cladding is unique and looks great. btw, the project consists of all the five towers visible in the pics.
And guess what, their thread only had 2,5 pages.

I actually think the Shanghai world financial center is underrated.

Yes but how often is it mentioned when people talk about the best buildings? It never seems to get placed next to the Shard, ESB, chrysler, Petronas,ect. All buildings it can compete with.

True. Even Taipei 101 is more mentioned and more people think that is uglier than SWFC.

i love them in Dalian and do not worry i am sure more people will know about them, because very very close is the plot for the 518m Greenland Center and that thread will draw more attention once it is rising.
