Well, right. This thread is not about other possible buildings, but for the Zoofenster alone. Please stick to the topic.

Well, it is okay, but the window-less backside of the tower just is a bad design idea. Unfortunately I see just that side from my balkony -.-

Note: right next to the Zoofenster construction work of another highrise should start next year: the Atlas Tower. These two will produce a cool ensemble I think:

So the Atlas tower will be the one on the right above ? It´s looking dominating these 2 together, very nice
And you´re right about that window-less side

This building seems really ugly to me, everything about it is symetrical apart from the glazing at the top.... Why? If your going to have something un-symetrical in the design I thing there should be more playful elements, not just plain facades. This building is too much like a failed Monevideo tower (Rotterdam) for my liking.

If this is the symmetry for you then you need to go back to school! This tower is quite nice but that's my opinion.

It's not my kind of tower, but it looks nice in that intersection. Its really similar to some buildings here in Argentina.

Wish they had a giant videoscreen at the top instead of the window.

would be a great idea for the backside of the building, although i would bet my ass that it wouldn`t be approved by administration..

A recent view of the entrance area at the Waldorf=Astoria hotel, we're getting closer to completion:

Es sieht alles schon ziemlich fertig aus, also lange kanns nicht mehr dauern...
