The spire without the glass cladding looks silly. Makes the building look small.

It is incredibly sexy tho

im might have posted to early. we think its still 311m. the spire still needs to rise. but anyhow, still tallest.
just for your interest. The Q1 tower was modelled from Sydney's olympic Torch!



JUST ON THE TOWER OF THE YEAR!
i think Q1 might go close. Eureka looks like finishing in early 2006 anyway.its official opening will be in march,2006.
who is Q1 up against in 2005?

Skyscraper of the year 2005 will be Turning Torso. Q1 looks great and is nice and tall but not a very innovative design. It is not even best in Australia for 2005, both 126 Phillip Street in Sydney and Yarras Edge 5 in Melbourne have much more interesting and innovative designs than Q1.

Well of course they are - they are in Sydney and Melbourne so why wouldn't they be. They are probably taller too....

Yarra's edge 5. Melbourne


126 Phillip St Sydney
