This is a truly original design for a skyscraper and it's great to see the cladding going on now. I love how the scale seems to be completely ignored with all these features such as the crown and the curve.

From Wikipedia :P
"A monolith is a geological feature such as a mountain, consisting of a single massive stone or rock, or a single piece of rock placed as, or within, a monument "

What's the name of the tower on the right, with the sides of glass that appear to be peeling away? It looks great! Almost like a much more restrained version of something Frank Gehry would design.

In the architectural terminology monolith can also refer to any poured-in-place concrete structure.
