This is definitely a box. The box is the ugliest form of architecture and requires the least amount of design talent. It goes up quickly and is relatively cheap, which is why developers like it, but there's no reason why anyone else should like it. China is being overdosed on blue glass boxes, in spite of what it's rulers may say about there being too many creative buildings. Beware the square!!!

I think thats not true. Boxes can be beautiful because of it's simpleness, sharp lines and soaring factor. I think it requires a lot of skill to make a good box building (that is not boring). I'm actually already a bit tired of all the twisting and oval towers.

This is an above average box with a nice crown that would look good lit up at night.
