Another great example of innovation, I am glad to find it. There are so many developers working on this segment but this is one of the best innovative idea ever. Thanks for sharing it here.

This thread topic deserves to be rejuvenated! There's so many lovely postmodern skyscrapers out there, especially in the Americas.

Still charming:

🔥 Tradition doesn't mean to look after the ash, but to keep the flame alive! 🔥
