Personally I like this design very much, it's one of those love 'em/hate 'em buildings. I wish some wouldn't get so worked up about it though, chill pill.

Not great.

Well, maybe it would be in the middle of a desert.

an example, crown las vegas:

Ban it, its a piece of Dali-ish crap. if they build it, the americans will have finally turned into the AMERICAN skyscraper idiots who allow for all sorts of messed up buildings to go up.

btw a lot of world achitecture is designed by so called 'British skyscraper idiots' and its all pretty well appreciated. yuo need to do a bit more research before u start preeching about whats good and whats bad architecture

Some buildings in England are beautiful: Swiss Re, Willis Building, Mayor's Office
but, some atrocities such as: 20 Fenchurch Street, 1 New Change
are going to be built because it's possible to do so, disregarding aesthetics and looks.. Modern Picasso- crap such as this New York tower should never be built. Anyway, it's just for the rich($30 mil starting price).

Give it to a plastic city such as Dubai, they'd have a great time with it plus New York doesn't need this rubbish, its as bad as that decomposed fish building that they're building at the WTC.

The other Calatrava building in NYC, the PATH building. Though I never heard it described as a decomposed fish before...

I like this building, but I dont think it works as such a tall structure. The idea of stacking luxurious mansions on each other is a cool idea.

Last I heard this building was dead, however. still a chance?

Agreed. It is one of the most interesting designs for a skyscraper I have ever seen and it will certainly add some diversity into New York's otherwise boxy skyline.

I believe that if you're going to build something tall enough to really stand out, you've got to make it iconic. Though London may not get many towers (we consider 600 feet some serious height...), this is what we are really good at. Skyscrapers are the architectural symbol of our age, just as spired churches and the like were in centuries past. We should put the same efforts into making them symbols.

(I love that PATH transport hub too.)

Given the responses, I think this building should be built in London.

It's your opinion that it would help out the skyline,that's fine.
but, taking into consideration Woolworth..1WTC..2WTC..American international..Trump..
Lower Manhattan does not have to be desperate to 'diversify' its skyline. It's as simple as that.

I say they should move it to Dubai or Shanghai where there are already a bunch of wierd looking skyscrapers there already.

I'm sorry, did you say London is good at building iconic skyscrapers,... you have Norman Foster's 30 Axe... and thats it. In terms of building skyscrapers London is a rookie in a league of elite players who have originated and almost mastered this artform.

The only skyscraper on the entire European Continent (which does not have that many scrapers) that I think is a beautiful building, is the Shard London Bridge.
