I have to say, there are posts I made long ago where I said "I hate it". Now I see it almost finished and "I like it" cladding and all. It does make some difference when the light is just right, but even when it looks orange, it's still one of the most unique structures I can think of. AND I love the 80's!

What is outdated? The bronze colour?
Please, answer:
- Why is the black colour not outdated too? There are old black skyscrapers.
- Why is the spire not outdated too?

It's not about colour, it's all about clading style. And l told - not pure black, but with some other colourful contras with in. And spire looks better with this shape. It's just my opinion.

I think it is because bronze glass color reminds many of us of those old ugly office buildings. It's just a matter of association really. Also, the glass doesn't look like glass, but like some dull plastic plates. I like the cladding of the other buildings in the district way more.

Actually I think this building would look cool with the following glass. This is the only building I know with this kind of glass color. I think it would look awesome on a skyscraper. It's kinda black-orange-purple-ish. It's very 'soft'.

Is the maker of that list on drugs or something?

Only the Grand Lisboa, Al Yaqoub, Elephant, Agbar, Antilia, and Guy's belong on that list. The rest are beautiful buildings.

I'd rather guess it's a case of plain jealousy, possibly politically motivated.

I've looked 2 days ago the pages of the thread of this contest and can't even remember to have seen a photo of MCT !!! (unless I didn't noticed it).
Other towers are taken from 3 km away...!!! As soon as 30 St Mary Axe appeared, Torre Agbar did as well on the next post !!

And apparently I lost my bet when I said that the iron bars of the last level of MCT would top out on August 27.
NO congratulations for erdnisloed
