This has been under construction my whole life, literally, longer. I am 17 on 8th May, and it's been Under construction all the time. Unique Tower though. Ticks all boxes.

It's a great showpiece of a building. Looks pretty and shiny and grand. Wonder if all the infrastructure in that building works as well...

All tall things appear as if leaning on normal photographs, the sloped shape just adds also the concept of optical illusion in the mix.

I will take the time to contemplate that idea.

Specifically this design adds to the illusion, IMO.

So you are insisting this tower might indeed be leaning, right?

No, there is an illusion that it is leaning sometimes, even though it's not, due to the tapers being viewed at different angles. But personally I think that's a cool feature.

Correct. The previous page (264 with my settings) showed many pictures straight on and offset, and in the offset pics it looks like it's leaning when we know it isn't. It is interesting, but I don't like it.

It is interesting outcome from a 3 sided pyramid, I don't think any Egyptian pyramid feel leaned from any angle.

If there were a three sided pyramid, in Egypt, it wouldn't look like it's leaning. I think it's the way the perfectly straight core section distorts the 'third wing' when viewed from the front sides. Wow, that's hard to explain.

I found this but I'm not sure where it is:
