Another great piece of art from SCB!!

Only that they should add some more creativity, most of their works look the same to me just with a different curves.

^ Wow! Philadelphia is a city from that I didn't expect so much greatness... From looking at other impression of this wonderful and outrageous place it seems to be one of the most beautiful big cities in the States
And this project is a great addition to the cityscape, absolutely no doubt with that!
