From Swisshotel




From the upper walk.





Variation in tinting.





Stairs and jungle gym.

Simply amazing, looks much like the work of a Brazilian architect (Rui Ohtake), but taken to the next level!
I wonder what those irregular divisions posted by spyguy are gonna look like when ready!

this goes beyond building, this is art. Love it, the condo tower I prefer the most in the entire world. Chicago should be truly proud, to create cutting-edge skyscrapers since the beginning of the creation of skyscrapers.

This might sound crazy, but.. it almost looks translucent, like a glacier. Gorgeous!!!! It's almost like the building is caked in ice.
