nice one.

I wonder why they used the skyline of minneapolis as a background in the first two pics. it's not like bangkok doesn't have it's own skyline.

Nice and original design, but it doesn't look anywhere near 235 metres in the renders. Either the designer of the concept render made the cars big, or the tower itself small. I opt for the latter

Very nice tower. Manages to be pleasingly asymmetric...which is something many buildings try to do, but not succeed.
