I wonder what that'll sound like during a typhoon

Seriously though - not bad at all. Interesting concept. Excellent philosophy. Some aspects of the design lack a bit of elegance but all in all - 7 out of 10 maybe.

Very cool! I would love to see more energy design like this in skyscrapers! Just like Bryant Park Tower in NYC and the various examples by Foster! Besides that most of that tower look cool too! A bit like machines!

I don't like the design from a pure form standpoint, but I think the technology and the concept behind it is amazing, if it actually works as advertised. I say build it.

On another note, it seems like Adrian Smith is creating quite the worldwide legacy for himself. He has several trophy buildings around the world, but add to that the world's tallest and a technological and environmental feat like this, and he'll be talked about in architectural circles long after he's gone.
