i was kind of disappointed when i saw that half of these lines are just stickers on the facade. cheap but clever trick.



though tokyo has great claddings. not a real sykscraper but i love that facade (prada building):

Nice, thanks for the pic mate!
Now I see what you meant, it really appears to be largely a visual effect only..
I still find the building absolutely awesome though.

I bet it was a brilliant trip

yeah 'visual effect' describes it best. its basically just a rhombus facade, but you dont notice it.
(and yes the tokyo trip was worth every single cent)



i think torre agbar belongs here too. i dont like the cubature of that building, but from a distance the facade is brilliant.

Yeah it looks really nice, but in this case I would appreciate it if it only were a visual effect in order to bring some variation into the mosaic.

Its brother (30 St Mary Axe) also has an awesome cladding imho.
