I do love these buildings. So simple, and timeless. They have a very strong businesslike, elegant, high quality character which I'm sure exactly matches the statement the city wants to make about itself. Its so nice to see a collection of towers that are not simply abstract forms covered in a skin of glass - rather, these look like solid buildings which have been designed traditionally with a thoughtful facade. More sustainable too with less glass. Well done all involved.

Are they popular in the city? How have they been received by local people?

These towers are so amazing! Can't emphasize that often enough.


Well done, Hans Kollhoff!
