OMG!! you mean they actually built that?!?! It's awesome!!! (except maybe for the podium... I don't mind the crown too much)
And in Panama City of all places?! How come Panama is getting so many interesting designs?!

That is amazing! I wonder if it was inspired by the DNA helix.

This towers is half amazing and half horrible.

I really love that twisted part but I hate the podium and that Pyramid on top.

Am I the only one that thinks the WHOLE thing looks terrible? Poor design, poor cladding. Looks like those cheaply designed post modern era kitsch buildings.

Amazing tower, from a distance you can't see the podium.

I love the building boom going on in Panama at the moment, but I really don't like this. I think this may be the worst "twisting" tower out there...

But I love the city.

I don't like it either. The shape is incredible that's for sure! But as a building.. I don't know. I like the buildings at the waterfront a lot more.

The cladding is not poor, is just that pictures don't make justice, I can see it from my apartment and looks great, very good quality of cladding.

Here's another recent pics courtesy of forumer CHI3.
