Saying it's a "copy" is being a bit stupid. Anyway, they are not very similar.





If I used your reasoning, all skyscrapers with a box ending are a copy of the twin towers.

Torre Espacio don't look like BoC Shanghai.

If one tower in Madrid look like one in Shanghai, is this one...

The hole on top. It was my first thought when I first saw it.

I guess they have something in commune if my first thought was SWFC and not Sears Tower.

P.S.
Any clarifications on Torre Espacio height? is 236m or 224m.

(in most pictures look shorter than Sacyr Vallehermoso)

yes.

I did not say is a copy of SWFC, I say:

"When I saw this building reminded me of SWFC"

Anyway, my point was that Caja Madrid is more similar to SWFC than Torre Espacio is to BoC Shanghai.

You may not live in Madrid because it has not been the worst in many years as you say...
