I don't know why, but this tower is one of the most fascinating towers to me Where I was in New York I didn't knew much about skyscrapers, but this stood out immediately

Normally I am not a fan of Gehry (usually dislike his stuff, especially the tinfoil crap), but I really like this one.

I always find it odd that everyone likes the ATT building but they hate the similar Verizon building. I say no 2 the reclad. Verizons ugliness makes it unique.

This building is a bit too much I think, especially in that part of town which tends to be very conservative.

the street to sky perspective is not as pleasing as the view from afar.

I like this design very much. At first, it was a little hard to justify it, but seeing it in person, it is truly a work of art. Has a dissociative machine-scape vibe to it. Love the complexity of it and it just plays with the mind. Post #106 makes it look creepy, and ominous.
