Hey, IngMarco,, If You agree with the banned guy,, that makes you an accessory,, you don't want to be, well, conspiracy banned.
The building looks incredible, and as an American,, I would love to see the magnitude and the brilliance of this in the US,, to me 1WTC doesn't come close to this!

And bigreach, didn't get the accesory thing, my english isn't that good lol, in spanish that would make no sense to me, and the comment I was referring to was removed. But hey, I'm not having second thoughts about this building at all, is incredible as you say. Perhaps I expected a lot more from what I should.
