I don't think it's childish, on the contrary, I think it has great creativity and innovation, and to this day is the only building with this concept in Latin America, just wait a while and you'll see other latin american countries imitating the concept, then you won't call it childish, I'm pretty sure of that.

Yes, I recognize that it is the only tower with this "twist" concept in Latin America and I commend this innovation in the region, probably we'll see more towers like this here but only because Twisted towers are a growing tendency in the world since Calatrava's Turning Torso, these designs give to the towers a great flexibility but not in this case, here you can see rather deconstruction or destructuring and that´s ok, but the thing is that this tower don't look refined and the top is not harmonious, it looks like something you can make with a Jenga, they used the concept without justifying, has no reason to be.

Es solo mi punto de vista, no lo tomes personalmente.
Saludos!

Don't worry, I won't, I'm just expressing my own point of view also, and I agree the design is deconstructive, but I personally like it, greetings.

This is an amazing tower and it proves that in Panama we are not afraid to go over the top in terms of design. We have pushed the Turning Torso into something completely different that is more like a screw and the base looks like a big bolt. Nothing like this is on plans right now in Latin-American region, but we are going to see more daring designs in the future to come thanks to Revolution Tower.

Unless I'm blind that appears to be blue cladding. Do you mean light blue cladding because I used to think the same but am loving how the cladding is turning out.

It's becoming the most recognizable building in Latin America, along with the TOC. Recognizable buildings=recognizable skyline.

Nah it's not blue at all, it's green, the sky and the photo editing made it look blue in that one pic.
