Looks like a 600m gay pride festival to me. Not that I have anything against gay pride...or parades. But that is a 2000 foot unicorn horn.

Topped out is a far cry from completed. Many projects are still U/C for a year or more after top out. In the case of the BK it may very well be more than 2 years.

I think he was referring to the fact that the status has not been changed to T/O.

Uhhh, yes. I'm serious. I love the height and design of this tower, but the lighting is F&%ing rainbow. Overly flamboyant. I personally love the "black suite and tie" lighting that has made major cities in the USA look serious. Overly extravagant lighting just looks like Vegas to me (this is why Houston will always beat Dallas in my opinion).

I'm sure this is impressive in real life though, maybe I would change my opinion if I saw it in real life?

China, Hong Kong and many other Asian skylines like Singapore and Kuala Lumpur have very bright and colourful skylines at night time. The colour represents vibrancy and energy within the skylines. Even cities like Perth is now changing to a more colourful skyline with them lighting up their towers in multicoloured lighting schemes.

^ I'm sure this fits in perfectly well in Asia as you've noted...I just find architecture more appealing when it doesn't look like it belongs in Disneyland.

I kind of agree with Brian. But hey, maybe it's just us. Maybe the rest of the world is way less prim and proper than America thinks they should be. I'll have no idea until I start travelling overseas.


EDIT: Btw, Houston does pretty much pwn Dallas. Just sayin'.

I agree this is just too much color. For special days I can see the point of it but for a regular day I prefer more "classy" lighting like just white or a "cold" blue maybe smt like parliament blue.

maybe the towers aren't occupied yet? so they need some light to shine the towers.
