This is a very nice design, with organic curves that trump any of Gehry's skyscraper designs to date. I call bullshit on the "50 floors" though. I barely counted 40, including the crown.

Come on, give me more pictures! I like how some part of the building are offset for the opening, bending. Looks like this kind of form will be the 2007 trend.
