If you think that's what a phallic shape looks like, you need to see your doctor.

It's not just him. Back in the good ol' days before tags for threads were monitored, one of the tags for this thread was "looks like a sex toy".

i am really interested to hear from people on the forum, their thoughts of the overall design and pos. or neg. criticisms. first of all I have to say this tower is breathtaking. It's the most organic looking building I've seen in some time. architecturally speaking, when someone creates a unique building like the turning torso, mimicry is never far behind. the skin of this tower twists similarly but it doesn't copy the "soul" of turning torso like cayan tower does. it improves on the "twist" through its uniform skin and shape, creating a suppleness. that said, the only interruption on its skin is the corner niche. I have to surmise that this contour is meant to clearly illustrate the movement of the body, in particular at a distance where the perception of warping, bulging and pinching of its mass seems to materialize. i am a little disappointed about the exterior glass and it's inability to make the inner cladding readily visible. i thought that would have been appealing. despite that, this is one of my favorite designs ever.

According to wikipedia, it's already topped out. I think it means the core though

This tower will become my second favorite building following the WTC Twin Towers once it's completed, it's perfect.
