I like these towers and their simplicity. Katowice is of curse Polish city and Kuryłowicz is the best Polish architect.

New renders






for me the White one is to small and too fat it would be nicer if it was the Same height just White then there would be twin towers. The project is not bad though. They have said they plan to finish by the end of 2009.

Looks a bit 1970's (a bit higher quality facade though) but the height is good. But I hear (and see) that Poles likes boxy buildings so this should be well received by the population
