Elegant. I especially like the 'grills' near the bottom.

I wish Germans would design their towers like they do their cars. This looks like something the Dutch would build and I hate Dutch architecture.

I'm not trolling. All the examples I've seen on this forum of modern Dutch architecture made me want to throw up. "Look, vee put a box ovar hear and anoser hear and zen vee color it different. And it vill have vindows, but every vindow is different size and von is hear and von is ovar zer. Very original." I just find Dutch architecture to be very unimaginative and plain.

I largely agree. Worst example of misguided Avant Gard highrise architecture is the huge, transparancy-killing "Rotterdam-Wall", imagined by someone to be sophisticated because ist Lego-brics are missalligned.

Another horrible trend is that of constructing "bend Towers": Buildings which look like potential mid-rises, yet given a 90 degree knick so as to look like a toppled L. Extremely trend-based and disruptive of everything which can be called "ageless aesthetic". Examples seen in Cologne, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and other places.

There are, by the way, signs that some Quality design is entering german highrise-construction. Check out the "Upper West" Project in Berlin.

That is one opinion and one way of presenting it. The thing is that this tower do not have boxes over here and there, it does not have different colours, the windows are as far as I can see fairly regular. If you should blame this one it is certainly not for being anything random. I am of course commenting on the office tower and that is a very strict and classic tower. I am sure if you feel an urge to express anything against Dutch architecture there are plenty of threads for that. This is just not one of them.

I was talking about modern Dutch architecture in general, because SASH wanted to know, what my problem with it is.
There seem to be two types of highrises in Rotterdam:

Colored boxes stacked on top of each other

The Red Apple by skumroffe, on Flickr

Boring boxes with square or rectangular windows

2010-03-06 Rotterdam - Europoint - 1 by Topaas, on Flickr

I think, the TaunusTurm would really fit into Rotterdam. It's just as boring as the rest of the buildings there.

Yes, and you still build highrises, that look like that.

You seem to mostly complain in this forum. A bit of a glass half empty type of guy/girl?

They could have been some twisty postmodern monstrosities a la Frank Gehry. At least they look good.
