I don't think that the City skyline would work without it. With all the new glass facade towers popping up, as well as the 100m midrises being given the same treatment, it really balances the cluster out and avoids the monotonous effect that the Moscow IBC could be described as, with the number of unusual designs ending up overbearing and contrived. Also from Norwood/Dulwich/C. palace, It stretches out the cluster south, and avoids a wall effect. Add that to being an 'iconic' design (in a subtle way), and it forms an indispensable part of our skyline. Ground level is dire, though
