I agree. Or a decorated, exploded grain storage stack. SOM has done better projects than this one.

Both the old and the new tower designs look nice...

I'm sorry that this comment might be arriving a bit late but I cannot not say that this is SUCH an outrage to see Foster's NY Hearst tower being copied and pasted like this!! An extra thousand feet is good but still... If I were him, I would sue.

Guess what? There are hundreds of thousands of towers in the world. Some of them will have similarities. Sue because a tower resembles another tower? Please. The vast majority of skyscrapers are a box with windows. Is someone going to start an international class action suit to pay royalties to some guy who built the first one 150 years ago?
