Uninspiring...You need something more elegant, like this:

What the hell is wrong with you!?! First you posted this in the freedom tower thread and now this thread too. I love Chicago and the fordham spire but keep it for its own thread and stop hijacking other threads trying to make other towers look shit compared to your oh-so loved forhdam spire. Who in their right mind would say that the SWFC isn't elegant!

EDIT: removed pic from quote

IMHO, SWFC is the best skyscraper going up right now, and Fordham Spire is just no match.

No offense Origami but I think the Fordham Spire looks like a freaking giant glass drill. To me SWFC is way better. Plus it doesnt need a tacky looking spire to reach it's maximum height like the Fordham.

The Fordham Spire is yet another copy of the brilliant Turning Torso in Malm÷. It's definately a nice tower, but SWFC will be more magnificent.

Sure it is elegant but it is a total rip off not to mention badly placed in the whole Chicago Skyline. The SWFC is much more stylish and modern. Atleast it doesnt look like a drill lol good one darkfenx!

I think two of the core's corners will be cut off so it will look more like a diagonal rectangle - judging from sections in my KPF book. So [ ] will look like //
