whoa finally a london design i like,the structural expressionism looks great on this building i really like the diagonal cross x bracings really give it a nice touch,the base of this building looks fantasic and bit bulky but can look pretty good from certain angles/.

This tower looks fat and it won't add anything to London's skyline IMO.

It is an interesting design, a little squarish but I like it.

Nice as an "inbetween" tower; it won't carry the load of representing London, but than again it doesn't need to. I think it will be a great as an ordinary, boxy, no nonsense counterpiece to the beautiful Bishopsgate Tower.

Is this tower really U/C? That's fantastic! How come I didn't know about this before?
