i didn't really like the spires, although it is quite sad that if they are not going up this building won't be a supertall.

Gate of the Orient @ August 2012

It looks like a pair of jeans and square shoes

the spire is tinier than i thought it would be, which is kinda a good thing, because i think the design is amazing and does not need the spires at all. especially once the two big brothers rise right behind it

I don´t like buildings that have such a "avangardistic" design. They follow a current "trend" of weird shapes, that will look sort of outdated and out of place very soon. Given the height of this one, it´ll be hard to blend it in. It also stands out way too much in the skyline pics, and rather distracts from the other buildings in the skyline, than to create a harmonic, coherent image of a skyline.

once the 500m and 700m monster behind it are done it will look a lot more fitting into the skyline i am sure
