It looks like a water fountaine, with the windows frames as water bubbles
Or like it is eroded by elements and time out of big block of glass. Verry natural after all.
Sympatico, not cold, verry unlikely for a modern building.

Even though im more a fan of traditional styled buildings, I actually like this one.
If it would have been the biggest and most visible building, my opinion on it might be different,
but like this, it is a decent building with nice little details, a verry good fill in.
It shows what modernistic buildings can be. More than ever if you compare it to something like Nordstrom or 432 PA.

Fun to watch this tower under construction, especially at the upper levels which is what truly gives this skyscraper such a unique form and silhouette.

This has to be one of the best picture of the tower I have seen so far. Shows why this is an instant classic.

It looks like Frank Lloyd Wright designed the top and my 4-year-old daughter designed the bottom.

Man that top 1/3 looks great. I can't wait to see what it looks like with glass.
