Unofficially, anyway.

You're the first one I've ever heard say that. I understand where you're coming from, but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised once it is fully clad.

it's not a question of too tall it's better or not
I think that that archs were trying to find an armonia drawing this skyscrpr or they were trying to design a history between the base and the top.
Sometimes archs tried to rech an armonia among more building (NY ground zero) but in this case I think they tried to fix the attention on the one and lonely building.
Maybe we can say we like or not, but I think we cannot say that they did their best

So what, they are clearly marked. And he can express himself as he please.

No wonder you have 12 000 posts...

Other than that, the cladding is progressing very well. The "Really Big Things" videos are very enthusiastically done.

Flyfish:

How you are describing it is the intention of the design. I guess not everyone likes it. I for example miss more bxy skyscrapers sometimes.

It's only annoying when forumers quote 10 pics and just write "wow" or "OMG".

vanhenrik was referring to pics to make points though.

Thanks Imre for latest pics.

It helps that the picture is from the air, so you get an appreciation of the thickness of the top half. From the base of the structure looking up, the top part actually looks thinner than it really is, simply because it is so far away!

Amazing!!!
