Very interesting project! Without trying to hard to be '' look at me, i want to be the center of the attention'', it is a discreet design, but a great one nevertheless! More projects should be like this; not every skyscraper needs to be a landmark, but more of a background tower for the landmark tower. I hate these skylines that have tons of towers trying to be the icon.

Paris La Defence needs a skyscraper that is covered in Golden color glass to put more punch into the whole picture. I hope all that blue won't become boring and bland tasted once finished. But on this one sure looks lovely.

I don't think any skyline should have gold in it unless its an origional 80s building, where it can be excusable. There are better ways to have an eye catching cladding (adding a texture for example) then simply changing it to a loud (and ugly) colour.

Gold is the worst color that a building can have (well, maybe brown glass is even worse). Unless the building is so over the top that it becomes cool again. Like the Grand Lisboa casino in Macau:



But that only fits because it's a casino. And that's the whole problem. If I see a golden building I can't help thinking about casino's, Las Vegas, Tacky, Kitch, etc.

Why not? ... Oh btw, that building being depicted below is really ugly and I know where it is located, but if you google the pictures of the Bank of Canada headquarters in Toronto, you will get my point better. I like something in that color and all over the building but not in such shape as BoC in Toronto

@Jex: lol you are funny. I know, I know mon cher ... but that is not totally of Golden Glass cladding

The cladding looks rather disappointing, compared with the promising visualisations.

Not that reflective at all.
