For weeks I thought it wasn't finished because of the way it is split (I hadn't paid much attention to the original design) but have grown to really like it. They could've made just a huge, tall pyramid and it would've looked great in the same way the Gherkin (and nearly every sky scraper) is a clean, full shape but doing it the way they have makes it a bit more interesting. In the rare moments when it catches the sun at the right angle it looks superb. It does still have an unfinished look because the top isn't all connected and some people I spoke to today were surprised when I said it was the launch tonight. Like any modern design, it takes some getting used to but eventually people will appreciate it more.
Yeah, but it still isn't the tallest in the land, fuck Larndan.
Oh, I love huge buildings - worked on enough of em, but, well they should have gone the extra 20.001 meters but they didn't and as such they leave the tallest in the view from my house
