I really like this design a lot. I like the curves and the overall shape, but the two squares on the side, imho, really interrupt the flow of the curves. Other than that, I'd like to see this design be built.

The design is awesoem but it's a little big for the area. It will look good if it was smaller.

When I first looked at it I thought it was some modified BAA, but it's different and really cool. I would say if you made the facade's color red (the kind of red eye) it might look cooler.

I think the design is interesting but maybe to busy. It appears as some giant skeleton sticking up out of the ground. I realize the client was looking for an icon but it doesn't have to be chaotic and super busy in order to become an icon. There are many iconic skyscrapers that are very simple in form. I would like to see the design a little more soft and fluid personally. I think its a nice idea as it stand now but I would try toning it down a bit. I also think that the square windows on the side need to go, they mess with the overall composition of the form.

I love it a lot.The only thing I would change would be the front garden plan.I would have palm trees going dowm the pathway and two marvelous fountains on each side and some garden work by the front of the tower..But looks amazing.Wish they were building that in Tampa,Jason

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I would also prefer it if the building were more continuous, I don't really like the symmetry of the form.
