I think it's great.
Better than the financial center in Hong Kong.

I still prefer the 2-IFC over Taipei 101. But Taipei 101 is a pretty nice skyscraper.

Very silly looking building. Too bad it is so tall. It sticks out like a sore thumb. Taipei will have to live with it. Don't see that one coming down any time soon.

I know it's a great building but I can't persuade myself to like it. Something wrong with the design I feel.

You guys may not like Taipei 101 but the scraper fits Taiwan pretty well since it's a Chinese city and the design has alot of Chinese elements to it.

There are many better designs but this one is amazing, too. The fact that it is inspired on bamboo plant or something else that means tradition in Taiwan gives the building a great plus and identity in my opinion.
