Just wait till it is done. The effect will be a bit similar to St. Nicolas tower (Red Square) IMHO.

It's such a perfect building. It has, in my opinion, one of the best claddings in the world, an awesome neo-80s shape, it's really tall, and it adds life and colour to an otherwise cold-coloured IBC. I can't wait until it's finished.

the ugly cup is a joke, who the hell who saw marina bay sands with their own eyes would think it is ugly.
also the voting was ****ed up, the pictures worked, but not the title, so half of the people voted for the ones they liked, at least i know i did. and now i stop voting, because why would i vote against Abraj Al-Bait or Ryugyong Hotel, both are amazing towers that are just hated for the location they are at.

I suppose I'm nitpicking though.
Yet Shard never been taller of MCT.

When I saw the first pictures of cladding I thought that it will be really one of the ugliest buildings ever. But now when construction of this tower is finishing, I can say that it's not bad at all. It's just unusual for our eyes.
