^ iono if it's just me, but sometimes i get the feeling that the tower might compliment the skyline better if the curve was facing the other direction
the cladding looks awesome

I can certainly understand your point of view.

However, we will see how the skyline looks in a few years from now when the growth of the WTC complex has redefined the skyline - then we can subjectively discuss the impact that the Goldman Sachs World Headquarters has on the skyline.
