I'm not sure about this one actually, it looks great in the renderings but in the photos it's not that impressive, especially the top.

7/10

strange, i am not very familiar with this one, but its form and massing reminds me of the AT&T corporate center in chicago.

the outside seems to have a ricardo bofill thing going on, even though he is not the architect.

its different in a good way, 8/10

Great use of colours, and nice shape, which, as sharptent already pointed out, is similar to Chicago's AT&T Corporate Center.

8/10 - Good soaring height, helped by the contrast between white mullions and dark glass, and the tower's indentations and setbacks. The facade is nice and sleek.
The butresses on the base are an interesting touch, but I can't quite tell from the pics how well the base fits in with the tower, and the top doesn't quite seem worthy of the tower either - they needed a few more small setbacks up there, I think...
The tower really stands out here.

This is my favorite building at night. I saw this in Shanghai
a couple of months ago. The lights dance over the entire
structure, all different colors and shapes. It's so playful.
You have to see it in motion to understand why the night
light show is so impressive on this building.
