The cladding looks like it would be the capitol building of some Martian colony...I like it!

The design is quite good, the color of the facade is horrible.

That´s true. This cladding is better.

Can I ask what is the reason to not build the spire ?

Why is the drawing showing 72 floors instead of 70 ??!!
Then, is the top around 325 m without the spire ??
Will 300 m be reached around October 20 ??

hmm no spire is kind of a detriment to the design. Throws it off balance

About the copper color. Photography, especially when optimised for contrast, color saturation and color timing often sacrifices the real-world appearance of the glass to other considerations. Can't help thinking many of the critiques here are based on photos.

The photographer's intent is to create brilliantly blue skies and intense color, or to 'tweak' an already brilliant dawn or sunset shot.
