The first looks great but the second one is even better.

I loooooove the "ugly" one, with those tumors, lol. I think it's so original. We've never seen something like that built before. The rest of the proposals are amazing, but they are quite common, i mean, there's nothing special with them IMO.

What is that light show in the middle? Is that a physical construct or a projection?

Does that glowing cylinder with the spires in the middle contain spirits/ghosts?
