    ...but nice eye re: the hands. This work is a bit creepy but that it is not the usual playing nice because it's public art, is why I like it and why I think it is hard to ignore.
    There is definitely some metaphors emanating from this work. It obviously has something to do with nature and he seems to be including the structure in there. ... Fascinating work.

    Cannot be unseen....

    It doesn't creep me out at all though. I love this thing. Everyone should go see it in person, you can stare at it for hours.

    I think it's gonna be a tourist destination. I'm excited for that area. Should be a beautiful neighborhood. With momofuku, the hotel, opera house, university avenue. Don't u guys think?

    beauty indeed. slick clean looking tower, yet with texture at the same time. this is the most well-rounded tower out of Four Seasons, The Ritz, and Trump. it's got plenty to offer from different POV's.

    @Cruzin4u, great photo.

    The Shangri-La glistens perfectly with its glass facade looking smooth and flawless.

    Here's hoping residents in the four double height units near the top give us a little 'performance art' of the sort that The Standard Hotel in New York offers regularly...

    I prefer the Zhang Huan in its details vs the overall effect.
