All the detailing is perfect. The vertical dividers are evenly spaced, and that atrium circle entrance is amazing. But I have to disagree with your organic comment. I actually feel like it's too forced (ex. this render) to be organic. At around 1/3 up it bends too sharply after having almost no curvature, then the upper 2/3's has a slight better curve, but it's too tapered.

The weird thing is that in this render it looks perfectly fine. I guess because it looks like it's round and it's not trying too hard with the curves. I know it's the perspective, but it looks so much better. In that render it also looks like it's a circle divided in 2, and the middle part slowly gets wider as it rises. It would've certainly made a cooler and much smoother effect/transition.
