That's one the biggest differences between good and bad architecture: choosing the right material.

Many architects forget that. They only think in shape...

Most of the job is done, just the entrance is left.

I never thought I would see a building by Álvaro Siza with such a Classical attitude!
He seeks so much for contextualism in his projects,and here he did it right...for New York City.
This was not a complaint

With nice weather this tower looks quite nice. I think the entrance and top look great, but overall this tower is a bit boring.

Gorgeous. Especially the top.
Just the base isn't that great. Very ... plain.

I agree with that. The glass in the base should have been set back a little. 30 cm would already do.

Great photos. I initially found the design of this building to be kind of boring, maybe a little too straight forward too. Looking at the balconies, how the windows are arranged and their sizes, the design of the top in particular, etc... there's more to it than might hit you at first glance.
