That structure frightens me more than anything else. Looks like it's getting ready to launch off the Earth. Eventually, we may have towers like that.

Such a gorgeous structure.

I love the tower but absolutely hate the "X"s on the sides.

I have the exact opposite opinion ... I think that they don't show enough.

no love for this tower? stop drooling over warped-glass-prisms and instead focus on real beauties! this came out almost perfect (would've been perfect if they used round glass instead of flat panels).

that last shot gives a great perspective of the tower and you can actually see the turbines! Although I wonder how the surrounding structures will affect the energy output from them.
