There are too many objects in these facades without a clear structural purpose, it is just clutter. So i prefer more serene types of architecture.
I hate this building too .-. I don't like it.

Maybe because people are sick of the twisting tower trend?

In my opinion, I'd say that one is probably the best of the twisters, so I'm surprised it's not getting more praise.

I think 4WTC is not underrated because it seems to be very well loved. Many people, I've noticed, like it more than 1WTC and some think it has the best cladding in the world.

I would say it's underrated in the sense of not getting much attention, well at least not compared to the other WTC towers. Maybe if it would be a supertall more people around the globe (not talking about New Yorkers) would start noticing it.

And yes, imo 4WTC has one of the best claddings in the world. The tower as a whole is pure class.

I think 4WTC gets the respect it deserves among skyscraper fanatics, no more, no less, but it's totally underrated to the general public. I think differentiating between the two is important.

You know it is underrated when you do not know its name.
