I think that the only place (in NYC) where this would look good is the land where the Javits Center sits now. It would fit right in with all the other interestingly shaped glass towers, instead of sticking out like a sore thumb amidst the prewars and post war boxes that dominate in Lower Manhattan or Midtown.

Downtown is getting some pretty interesting towers these days.

But what I meant is I would like to see it built anywhere. It's not meant to be though.

What is that supposed to be, Crushed paper? how ironic.

Oh and the way it's kind of off-center from the rest of the skyline really bothers me.
