Haha, I don't mind you borrowing my pic. Yes that's Minister Court, a lot of people hate it, but I know quite a few who like it too. I guess it's 'different' and I think it definitely adds some variety to the skyline, although I'm glad it's only a midrise rather than a highrise/skyscraper.

Kind of puts me in mind of PPG Plaza in Pittsburg, PA. It has the same "I can really see what you were trying to do there" look to it.

I love those buildings, postmodernism like it should be: Symbolic, historical and exaggerating. Too bad they are not taller

I think this is the only skyscraper of which I cannot imagine the final product until it's fully built.

^ i don't really care how it's design is going to turn out, the city just needs more glassy towers (200m+ and others like leadenhall, the pinnale etc) in order to get good density.
