i love the renders, but not sure the final result, i think it would look much better with all the stuff in the lower part in white, instead of green, great building tho...
nice update!

A weird building but I like it.
Looks as strange as the nearby Vinoly building
It seems the Zuidas development is going steady , pity there is no tall landmark due to the vicinity of Schiphol airport.

This is a weird building. I would rather see the rock blob at the top used for the base treatment. The glass is articulated nicely, it would be better suited for the entire curtain wall from top to bottom. A behemoth with a bad haircut.

I'm sorry but I personally can't stand this whole 'zebra skin' fad going around architecture right now. I feel like in 20 years this gimmicky design will be seen for what it is kind of like how we look at eccentric buildings from the 60s today.
SOM is doing it with this building in Brooklyn right now and I think it looks hideous.

^ I am too. I'm tired of seeing these Vancouver style buildings that the US loves so much like a moth loves light. We need much more bold designs in buildings.

Oh and I love The Rock.

And The Rock.
