Wow. I like his originality, although some of the buildings are eyesores. these buildings are better off in suburban centres, where they have one or two skyscrapers. When included in the downtown skyline, they r bad. Bassically these buildings should be located alone, far from the others.

^yeah you're right.

this guy is very smart. LET'S SEE if some of you Architecture students learn to break the rules a little bit just to be different.

Being different means another point of view.

Yes, I agree with you. These buildings look like Lego. They're strange ... and ugly.

I have a feeling people havent quite realized the level of mastering of materials and light that you needed to create a tower like this:

The presence of the coloured horizontal line at each floor level is essential to the illusory effect.
Here is the updates form the past few weeks of it under construction.

Here's the illusuion.
