hmmm I really dont know what to think of this. The first design (the pencil one ) actually grew on me and I like it in its simplicity. This new one of Foster is very impressive, no question about that though it really does somehow seem to monstrous

The ecological considerations taken in this building remind me of what Foster did for Commerzbank Frankfurt and London's Swiss Re.

Once again...this desgin is fundamentally no different than the CN Tower or the Burj Dubai with 3 wings attached to a central core. This must be the best recipe for building tall.

I don't know if this applies here but I know that a triangular structure is one of the strongest you can make. I wonder if this was taken into account when designing this tower, or the burj, since both are rediculously tall

But with the new design.

I really don't like this building. Like many people say, it looks like the unfinished 330m, Ryugyong Hotel.

The old design of SOM was better.

Sooooo Cooooolllll one.......

But the hollow part on the top seems like a waste of space for me, I'd like to see a terrace there.
