Q: What visual impact do you want these towers to have?

A: I think not since City Hall has there been such a building. One of the excitements of cities is the skyline. That’s particularly true of Los Angeles, and the way the buildings are not uniform, but varied. This is a building that actually comes to a point instead of being squared at the top; it gives a more organic view to the skyline. It’s a more organic form than geometric.
I agree, skylines help identify cities. Since there will be time to change, this one should be pushed to something more.
