Chiamparino, Turin's mayor, is knitting his eyebrows, and so am I. Why did the staircases (or whatever they are) have to swell out like that? The building is plain hideous. Has Piano begun drinking by any chance?

The "cubes" on the left will be in crystal and will be used as gardens. The other ones on the right are conference rooms..

It looks a lot like the NYTT, but when you look closer, it's the same architect
Bravo Torino, this is a great building

But is it just a proposal or will it actually get built? Strange that they start to build skyscrapers now and not for the Olympics.

I like its design, very glassy and modern. 150 meters tall is not too bad though but it should be taller than that.
