Very nice, I really like this tower. However, I think its "cousin" in London is even better.

Both are spectacular towers.

Two non-concentric oval cylinders crowned by a glass and steel dome. The inner cylinder holds the vertical traffic nucleus and the installations.

Between this central axis and the eterior there are 31 spacious floors without internal columns.

Its first skin, covering the concrete wall, is a layer of polished aluminium in earthy tones and blues, greens and greys, decomposing as they gain in height. The second skin is made up of 59619 sheets of clear and translucent glass

Some other features:

50500 square metre built area
25000 cubic metre concrete
250000 kg steel
4500 windows
40 different colours

Yeah, I can't deny that looks like a *****, but how many dildos of this size and so many different colours have you ever seen? No wonder why mi girlfriend loves it. And me, of course! I mean, the building...
