Well, yes. Any building in Mordor will be scary, because of what might lurk inside...

It's scary because of how imposing it is on the cities skyline.

Looks very cool! Those 3 conical parts at the top almost look like they are free-floating.

It actually turned out to be very impressive! I hope it's also safe, given how long the structure was exposed to rain and climate changes without cladding.

The building is true dominant. It wouldn't look good in a cluster. It looks good by itself. The dominant building.

I don't like the facade on this building, it looks all wavy or as if its a big sticker with air pockets in it. I guess its better than concrete though.
