It's funny that you mention the Shard because this reminds me of that and of the Leadenhall Tower.

It look nice and very modern. It changed the way we look at modern art museums (which is usually a 3 - 6 floor building). I wonder if there are other highrise museums designed like this one?

Seems like 99,9% of the people is positive about the design. So am I, Not so very tall if you see the projects around the world, but maybe the best designed 300m+ tower...

It is nice and different. However I think the top part, from front view, looks kinda weird.
