I know, it's just that too mujch of a good thing can become simply too much, or even bad.
Surely, you do not want all towers fom now on to be made just of glass. Maybe a nice combo of materials could be more interesting.

This one is very very nice! I love it. It looks a little bit like a tower I designed.

Here's one I took a few minutes ago from the office. The building isn't completely out of context.

pretty damn sweet. I am a fan of simpler designs such as this one and agree that alot of modern architecture is "overdone".
