Design lacks coherence. The glassy floors should be redesigned.

While a few details should be changed, I like the feel of the building... It feels really inviting, and open. The floor may be a little much, but I suspect they will change it a bit.. I find a lot of projects in Pakistan end up with changes when they are completed or am I wrong... For all we know that first design may not even be the final one..

It's an alright building... not every building under construction has to be mind-blowing and amazing... every city has its share of mediocre buildings. Its not ugly, thats the main point.

You know, for all its worth, sometimes I think the buildings going up in places like Dubai are just as mediocre, despite all the hype... I mean, its all a matter of how you look at it, some will love it, some will not. Problem in Pak in Islamabad is that you can count on one hand the number of highrises going up, so a single mediocre or less then steller design tends to stand out that much more.

Im not too worried about this one. Pakistani renders usually turn out to be much worse than the actual building.
