CCTV building? although the roof on these is much thinner

I find it quite strange that people like these buildings so much, even though they are just a bunch of boxes!
I do agree though that they are an incredible bunch of buildings, which shows that not all boxes are boring.

happy now?

Of course your'e right, who would think otherwise? This towers will not be conected with just skybridges, they will share entire floors, so If you work in one of these shared floors in which building do you work Its clealry a desing feature. Saying we have several buildings here is like saying the cctv is not one building but two.

The project consultants, steel fabricators and steel manufacturers are still in discussion about the final design, materials to be used and the building method (build on site or lift from the ground)
