Big cities need boxes. Chicago is the land of boxes, and London is adding yet another box to its supply.

I don't see why towers like the one pictured above are called "boxes." The roof outline may be a square or rectangle, but the flaring on that tower towards the bottom sets it apart from boxes.

Maybe I'm thinking too literally, but to me towers like the Aon Center and Trump World Tower are all that can be called "boxes."

So if this project was "cancelled" and replaced by a 600ft "box", why is this page still here and why are people still talking about it? Shouldn't it be moved somewhere else?

You're right, the building above is no box

I'm sure that would really irritate Charles since he hates International style as much as I do.

Charles will have to avert his eyes from these monstrosities during the Olympics.
