If they were 2 separate buildings, I would kind of like the one on the left and give it a 7/10. The one on the right is more of a 5. It's too tall to have that kind of top IMHO. As a single building, I have to give it a 3/10. As someone else said, the base is very awkward and, frankly, I don't think the two towers relate to one another. That's OK, even desirable, if they are separate, but not if it's one building.

Also, I like neoclassicism, but I must admit I have not seen a good example of it in a building built since WW II. I don't think we know how to do it any more or perhaps its that the materials and workmanship would be far too expensive today. Anyway, as drawings these two are interesting but as actual buildings I'm pretty sure they'd be a mess.
