Hello guys. This nice building was designed by me. And yes, it has a twin. Origianlly it was planned as a building in a computer game. I designed a lot of buildings, this is the tallest.

My friend put it into Wikipedia, but the artcle has been deleted.

I am currently working on a website for the proposal. Letrs see. Every floor is about 3.3m tall. I dont know the number of windows, I guess it´s about 100.000 per tower.

This section is for any and all projects, including mountains and that eye sore in the sky thing.
