Certainly no one here would call it a box. Yet the parcel of land built on it is perfectly rectilinear, therefore constraining the preconstruction dimensions of the building to that of...well...
...a box.
How paraboxical is that??

I wouldn't call BofA a box, but it is very fat. I would have preferred something a little more streamlined, which would have given it more height. The bulkiness of it makes it a little stubby. Not exactly a box, due to its angular design, but still fits within the grid.
