So Foster is supposed to be Guatemala and Bjorke is Paris ?? Not that it's not hilarious but based on this I don't think you have the right to criticize anyone elses level of understanding architecture here.

This is Varso the tallest U/C tower in European Union (310m) a new landmark for Warsaw designed by him. Foster = childish design? Say it again.

That is ******* gorgeous. Truly Foster is the master of 21st century design. BIG is okay. But his designs just don't stand like Foster's visions. Thank God Foster is designing the new tallest 1000 plus foot skyscraper in Dallas!

That looks pretty lame for the so-called "tallest" tower design for the EU (that giant toothpick on top is pathetic). The design is fairly generic at best.

I just realised that this building in Warsaw is similar to WTC 2 original design in some ways - diamond shape and building's progressively narrowing to one corner.

Unfortunately the value engineering had to make this tower visually bland.

Will we start banning people who insult galore soon? It maybe a sign of the time, but it's still tiring.

I'm liking the parapet more and more, but I'm still not completely sold. Interested to see how I feel when the tower is finished though.

The tower isn’t ugly but I feel it could’ve been much nicer and iconic.
