7.5/10

In its heart, its still a box, but it hides it well. The shape is awkward, but still not bad. Just needs to have some other talls around it to give some contrast. Maybe they should have built it closer to the main cluster?

I have grown to like this building more and more
The spire now looks really cool, esp once they open to obs deck in the little sub-spire floors at 100 and 101st

I like it now 8.9/10

If Taipei 101 stand in NYC, HK, Chicago, Tokyo, Bangkok, or Kuala Lumpur, it will look better. But in Taipei, so ugly because no other tall buildings to balance the overall skyline.


4.5/10.

I was never a big fan of the design, but it looks nicely oriental, and looks fantastic at night
7.5/10

At first I thought it was hideous, but I've gotten more used to it, and it deserves points for originality. 8

I don't like this building. Firstly, it uses it's narrow roof top and spire to steal the title (just like Petronas towers). Secondly, it is located in Taipei which is a very dirty city. Thirdly, the overall design is shit.

Is it possible to make voting available only to users with at least, let's say 50 in postcount?

Yeah yeah, ip checks might work too but I imagine many ppl have access to several computers at school, libraries etc.

I don't like it... I hate it! I gave it a three, looks like a couple of ricemeal boxes stacked up, I don't like the idea of Chinese Traditional turned Modern style of Architecture and the feng shui thing? That's a total lie! Bad and Good fortune are just parts of China's fortune-telling culture thingy....
