Haven't looked at this thread in a bit, nice to see the crown going up. Foster's building looks good from this angle. I always thought it was a bit brutalist, but here it almost looks futuristic.

It's both brutalist style and futuristic.

Index tower happens to be one of my favorites as well. To each his own I guess.
