What on earth is this design supposed to be? I dont get it... at all. In fact, there are no words. Just awful.

I dont get why they feel the need to put two completely different designs on top of one another. I would like the top half if it had more continuity with the bottom half but it doesn't, especially with the huge gap in the middle.... Weird.

I think it's pretty cool what they made of it.. I mean, there's a screwed up carcass in the middle of the city. What are you supposed to do with that?

I like the design. But is the top not to heavy for the bottum?

I love both designs.. The new design is awesome in my opinion. Especially the bottom part. I just hope Chicagoes skyline doesn't become a row of dominoes falling on top of each other because this tower is unsteady.

The top one is pretty nasty. Hope the gap in the middle is fixed too.

I have also heard that there are people up on the top floor walking around taking pictures of its current conditions. I think there observing it for the middle part of the project. So that nothing goes wrong with it..

I believe I read about this on skyscraper page.

Part of me likes the design because its bold, daring, and eye catching. But, part of me sees the top and bottom, and is like did you order the wrong part ?

Question: how did you find this new proposal? Is there any articles on this? Also is there a name for this?
