I don't like it either. Thinking 'out-of-the-box', gone wrong. Ugly.

it has a unique shape to it, that is a plus,
but come on SOM. a transition from a square base to circular to shouldnt
look this odd...but maybe in 10 years this will be nothing odd, comparatively?

When it comes to skyscrapers and arcitecture I'm very open mined and I easily accept a proposed design. I'm just not really feeling it with this building. Maybe it will grow on me over time. I'm not going to bluntly say "I hope this doesn't get built" or "It doesn't fit in". We'll just have to wait and see.

I don't think it is ugly, just weird. It reminds me somehow of Foster's designs like WTC kissing towers or Hearst building. The old rendering looked like the Transamerica Pyramid's base with weirdness above.

How it goes from square to circle is cool, though.

Also it would look beter IMO if the crown was not like a giant waste basket and put 4 spires equilaterally around the perimeter.
