I don't think the tower was intended to appear "slashed apart." I think the diamonds are just supposed to be pointing to where the Twins used to be.

What QMile stated is actually one of the reasons people didn't like that building at first.

I apologize for going OT, but is that Wedge of Light concept still with that building? I've read conflicting comments...

Anyway, I think Tower 1 looks imposing like the Twins; but it also looks gentle.

I always felt that the twins looked out of place, but they would have looked out of place just about anywhere in any city. They were excessively dominating.

Every time I see new renderings of this cluster I'm that much more convinced that they are meant to be.

I think that the new complex is perfect in working with it's surroundings. I like the pure domination of the Twins more but this gentle ascend is good too

Btw, in that picture with the lit pool at evening the pool looks awesome. Oh no, I'm starting to like those toilets and Libeskind's master plan Oh my, this can't be happening

That's right.
I hope, they look in reality as good as on the renderings.
I don't want to get disappointed!

I think it has something to do with shining sun light on a certain spot at a certain time of day, or maybe the time of the year when the sun is at a certain spot in the sky.

Haha it gave me some entertainment while sat at my desk today if this tower was being built in the UK, it would already have a silly nickname such as 'the highlighter'

That would be the most awesome thing in the world if they would do that. However from what I know it isn't possible anymore Once the foundations of a building are done the shape of the building can not be changed in such a large scale
