Sure. I wouldnt use that white frames, it looks cheap and kitch. Pure glass would look SO much better.

More or less yes. I wouldnt use the white panels on building contours either.

I would think that would be the next step in the evolution of twisting towers

IMHO, white frames make the view of tower more clearly from the distance.

Without white frames, the view of tower may merge with other buildings.

It could be done and IMO it would look more esthetic.

The shape of the building makes it distinctive and original enough I think. If main concern in new building projects would be avoiding "merging with other buildings" then we would have luminous pink, yellow and so on towers. Its not a good way tho is it.

I guess you did catch the sense of the name "Evolution tower". It is supposed to remember the DNA chain, and in my opinion, once it is completed, it will fully achieve its purpose.

Just glass wouldn't have been brave enough to create a markable architecture.


Anyway, everybody has his own opinion.

Architecture don't need to be too literal when it wants to symbolise something, boundary between symbolism and kitch is pretty thin.
White stripes and contours didnt create a remarkable architecture in thi scase, they created asiatic - byzanthine kind of architecture. But yeah everybody have their own opinions and personal tastes.

The Evolution Tower symbolizes DNA molecular structure. If you remember biochemistry, there are chemical links between the nucleotides of DNA.

And those white strips reflect the meaning of the skyscraper, make this meaning more obviously
I deeply respect such an intellectual solution, unfortunately, few can understand it.

As I said before architecture don't need to be too literal and obvious when it wants to symbolise something. When its too literal it means that the message it wants to give is directed not at intelectual people but at complete morons who cant understand subtle symbolism. So to make it even more obvious they should also put a huge neon EVOLUTION TOWER / DNA on the skyscraper's facade.
