cool thread with very distinctinve buildings. Hope it's not some sort of fad where in hundreds will be built in one city. I suppose these things are quite expensive to build structurally speaking.

The proposed Bishopsgate skyscraper in London also has a unique twisting design:

I'm totally with Archibomber on this one. I'm sick of it and it has only
just begun in earnest.
It is an exercise in futility and trendiness. These buildings will look
soooooo dated in ten years time.

i beg to differ.
i think they will become classic stylish, and timeless as sleek boxes are.
