Yeah, pretty much - I believe that Lowenberg (architect of record & developer) came up with the box but gave the design end to Studio/Gang. Lowenberg has historically been a kind of slash & build guy, but I give him a lot of credit for ceding some of the LSE project to S/G. They've achieved a lot here with very little.

If it was anything else but a box, the effect would not have been the same. Its simplistic, yet elegant. However, they should leave out the balconies. Those balcony rails are going to spoil the buildings face. This tower fits well in the Chicago skyline.

this is turning out great! such a gutsy design, but i think it will blend in perfectly to the skyline. it seems that from far away it is hard to make out its curves, but up close it is spectacular. i hope the metal railings dont ruin it

Have a look at the render that i_am_hydrogen posted, from SSP.
Still 29 floors to go.
