Dynamic position of each individual tower in the matrix is intriguing to say the least, but is anyone else besides me having issues with the overall simplistic blocky shape of this complex?

It is slightly simplistic, but yet, it is awesome. I think Foster, as always, did a great job

I like the concept but I'd like to see something done with the roofs. It is too blocky.

The very block nature looks great, it goes with the general trend of new developemnts here!!! I think it is a good piece of architecture, but what would you expect from Foster???
