tower 42 is a more than 30 years old tower and it's made with dark colored glass and steel, unlike the one you compared with, which has blue colored glass windows and stone cladding/facades.

here is detail of tower 42

older does not mean better and vice versa, but you were comparing an orange to an apple. i think you have to understand the differences, characters and structures of each building that you want to compare. you can't just say those are the same buildings or label them like brothers unless you've a genuine understanding on each of them. bare in mind that i am not claiming the tower 42 in london is superior than the one in istanbul you showed before. it is just a matter of taste, some people (like myself) prefer glass/steel/complex materials over ordinary stone cladding, but some of them prefer tall towers which have neoclassical facades and some sort of different inspiration etc.

i think you have an issue and you have ignored to answer the question, p.s isbank tower does not have the same cladding like tower 42. that's obvious.

dude, shapes of both towers are very boring. besides this, that dark colored cladding of tower 42 gives mourning air to london skyline. even, i do not mention its roof..
