It looks more like a giant sculpture than a scraper. Pretty imprssive though.

didn't somewhere says it's a lotus flower shape building? It may have some Feng Shui factor too, something that Stanley Ho always emphasizes on.

The 'grooves' that curve along the building are lit up with moving neon colours, much like the AIG in Hong Kong. It's quite a cool lighting scheme.

Not sure if I like it at night...the grooves are a bit boring.. but the base (bulb) at the bottom is absolutely fab.
The gold colour disappears at night, and there a lots of flashing lights.

Guess it can be said that it's not hard to miss it It's an interesting design. I don't know if I love it or hate it, but it's certainly interesting.
