I think this design is brilliant. It takes the too oft-used diagonal bracing motif pioneered by Norman Foster and adapts it very smartly, subtly reducing the size and height of the setbacks to create upward visual momentum while carrying the theme throughout. I really can't wait to see how the facade lighting works.
