^^^ I have the exact opposite opinion. I find the design quite classy and its proportions very attractive. Actually, it might be my favorite proposal in recent years.

It is very classy. Manages to look very slick, despite the purported brown stone facade. Hope it turns out very similar to these renders.

I love this tower. It looks like a New York style skyscraper, which would have looked amazing in the New York skyline if the same design was proposed for the new WTC.

Not to start a city vs. city, but I believe you mean a "Chicago Style" skyscraper since most of the designs this is referencing came from Chicago and the Second Bauhaus.

Could do without the gold, but it still fits. The second tower looks like American Commerce Center.

These samples will be analyzed in order to assist with the structural design and construction.

文字介绍
平安国际金融中心
深圳繁荣与持续发展的见证,建筑形体的力量与平衡,足以代表城市个性的地标建筑。简洁现代、庄重恒久。面向未来的绿色建筑。彰显业主在中国保险业的领导地位。
建筑理念源于平安大厦设计的基本要点和要求,同时直接回应周边环境和地段情况。此高层建筑将成为中国深圳的新地标,将成为冲破天际线的里程碑。建筑地上高度达到588m。该建筑地上地下共计127个楼层,最高的楼层为118层,高出地面550m。
平安国际金融中心位于深圳市福田中心区地块益田路与福华路交汇处西南角。地块西侧与低密度购物公园cocopark相邻,东南与深圳会展中心相望。规划中建筑定位为国际标准高端办公商业综合体。大厦的高度是深圳普通高楼的三倍。这意味着站在其上瞭望, 视野会极为开阔。大厦形体的出发点是希望让更多的用户享受宽阔的视野。在高出周围大楼的层数上大厦的形体作了拓宽。
系统的结构是一个有效的斜肋系统。斜肋在比例上逐渐递进,迎合了底座上较小的角度和较短构件及高层上更大角度和更长构件不断变化的力的要求。
通过光滑、多表面的对比以及复杂立面自身具有的自遮蔽效应一年中可以少吸收太阳光左右。凹陷部分形成了空气凉爽的区域使得大厦上部更多楼层可以享受到自然通风。多立面形状粗糙的表面进一步降低了涡激振动使结构更为有效。
建筑物中包含万的国际标准优质办公空间。办公室地面的设计可适应各种市场需求。建筑的锥式形式产生了多种不同的地板尺寸。三个空中大堂被定义为直达梯和穿梭梯间的转换空间。每天数量众多的使用者穿梭经过因此它们也是极为重要的楼层。
空中花园为平安国际金融中心各组成部分提供了一个引人注目的中心。建筑物的整体形式提供了的公共空间。这些空间构成了空中花园位于塔楼的顶部及较宽阔的部位。通过室内沿边的梯形剪切块形式可将光线充分引入楼面深处,并有助于降低总体能耗。同时这样的边庭
有助于提高塔楼室内外的识别性,使更多在塔楼中的工作人员能够直接欣赏到整个深圳优美的景观。挑空空间增强了各楼层间部门的连通性而这在一般设计中是常被忽视。这种设计有助于加强员工之间的交流并在员工之间形成亲密的团队意识。
瞭望平台设计为供公司贵宾娱乐的设施供客户专用。从各层均有360度的视角考虑到现场的方位和高度,这将无与伦比。邀请客人到这些设施中将是很值得并具有吸引力的。双倍高度的了望甲板接待楼层位于第111层。该层将提供接待、休息及会议室设施。

I really dislike both designs. Cheap and boring imo. The tower on the right of this picture is pretty though.

Also, please credit the picture source ardecila or your port will be deleted.

I think that Foster proposal, if built, would turn out really spectacular.
