Great design, though it needs some more glass.

How tall is it BTW. And yeah, I agree with everyone else that it needs more glass.

I would differ from majority and say: too much. Curvy highrises are becoming very popular, but here have been united too many elements, looks like shouting: "We are even more modern than the others because we have got every possible curve in one building!"
Glass won't help either. Better leave just the central, most unusual element - the central body of the building. And have a bit less repetitions of the curves - some three or two may be.
That's just according to my taste

^The general shape of each mass is very similar. Both basically emulate a spinnaker sail.

On the whole I think the design is very nice, certainly the shape looks excellent in the first render. I think I would agree that to some extent there are too many competing elements, i'd prefer to see much simplification of the base and some of the detail to let the rather stunning shape speak for itself. Those squiahed windows on the tower look wrong to me. Having said this it seems that buildings designed for eastern countries tend to like the "gaudiness". With regard to the base, the shape/massing looks OK in the third render but again in the other two looks a little sloppy. Also, if the white bits could be thinned out a little I think this would improve the aesthetics somewhat. For my tastes I think the finish on the design just needs to become more elegant, to suit the already elegant tower shape. It could look like the headquarters of an evil serpant lord if the imagination runs too far

in its solitude looks like the hood of a king cobra, may be you can develop the mast into something like it...
difficult to understand the scale of the render,
if you can give a twirl to the base it could look more like the snake part.
It is difficult in the competitve market, seriously

nice exteriors with less glass..

I quite like it and wonder why not all glass and can only assume that there are some sought of ESD principles involved but I like the basic design. I would change where the tower meets the podium so that the middle curve continues down but twists out. I would also paint or clad it, darker colours on the horizontal elements and something standout on the upright and curved elements just to define the shape a bit more.

It looks nice, though I am worried it might look too brutalistic when build.
