What a terrible building. I was expecting something stunning. Instead they built this hideous chunk. I have to lower my expectations for future projects I presume.

What a scam, the spire ruins it all. I could literally lay down and cry when beautiful buildings get ruined this way.

Its really too bad they put that antenna on this building. This building is already very fat which hurt its appeal from many angles, and the antenna was the real nail in the coffin.

the whole antenna discussion has become neurotic. its like a nice woman's face with a small pimple on her chin and everyone is getting obsessed with just the pimple.

Looks very impressive in real, I got to admit that. Probably the most beautiful building I've ever seen during a sunrise, magnificent light reflections.

It looks more like a nice woman with a *****.

What was the architect thinking?

The architect probably had no choice in whether or not there would be an antenna.

Also, this is the most shapeless building I've ever seen. There's no way to describe the shape.

Pimples disappear over time, this ugly stick stays. The building is an aesthetically enclosed shape that can not handle further attachments.

Two hyperboloid torsos, connected by an atrium. Very vague, but it's hard to describe it further.

of course, that's how the architect described it and what immediately came into my mind.

a beautiful building.

As I said a while back, the fattest skyscraper I know. But the massiveness and brutality has it's appeal too. A fitting HQ for the capital bank of Europe.
My friend (who doesn't care for skyscrapers/architecture at all) just took a glance at it and said, it looked like a giant iceberg, stranded in the city. That's actually a really nice metaphor...

Or a crystal .

I would like to see a render with just some sky bridges between the two towers instead of a closed atrium. Must look cool and not that fat.
