Why is it overrated? Who overrates it anyway?

The amount of pictures it appears in. It's mostly boxes. Fortunately slightly newer towers are coming.

There's a fair few boxes in La Défense and Frankfurt, however it doesn't undermine there respective skylines nor does it make them overrated. CW original guidance plan (1990's) was to maximise floor plate size for tenants, thus giving its corporate boxy appearance to this day.

However like I said previously and you stated above, there are many curvy towers planned ahead, although also a few boxy ones too. It's everyone's personal preference and taste anyway.

6. Both Russia and Turkey are categorized on SSC as part of the European section and therefore both countries are accepted as full European nations in our forum.
