The upper set-backs are making their presence known. Topping off soon-ish.

Speaking of glazing....this smoky green hue is appealing.

I do hope it all ties together in the end but at present the tower and podium are two disparate elements that jar too much*. If only the vertical shared more of the juggernaut presence of the base. Though the flat affect of the "stone" facade could use more texture and rhythm too (is it better in real life?). I'm left wondering...
