I'm not carried away but it's original...I wish it wasn't that massive. The good point about it: its cladding, really beautiful.

Twenty or even 30 m higher and the building wouldn't look as fat and plump, as it will look now.

Besides, isn't this thread in the wrong section? The building will feature a spire (not an antenna) that will bring the height to 220m (as far as I know).

I don't like the shape of the frankfurt cluster, and unfortunately this nice skyscraper is so far from it

Are those cross-braces really work structurally? or just decoratives?

just found THIS on the ECB homepage:

Quote:
The structural design of the two office towers is based on reinforced concrete frame constructions. The north tower will consist of 45 floors and the south tower 43. Steel trusses and connecting platforms in the atrium join the two towers together to create a single static structure.

Nice picture and it gives you an idea of how it could have looked like IF it was built in the banking quarters (bankviertel).

^ Great photos of a breathtaking building, in deed. Even better, it will grow higher and they will glass the gap between the two towers, thus forming a tall atrium. (Xorcist, to your question: With permission by the owners, you can hotlink their photos. Without, you can only post links to the original website/post as you did in your last post. Thank you for that and cheers to Berlin.)
