hold it..... Been deciphering this project and it's clear that Zaha Hadid's Vienna University of Economics and Business soon under construction in Austria is a combination of Evelyn Grace Academy and MAXXI. OMG
Typical Zaha design, though her ranking on 'the wip list' has dipped. I guess that has something to do with her rigid PR team. This design, I like.
I thought this is what contemporary design is all about.... Residencial buildings don't have to keep the retro- semantics, otherwise creativity would die with that notion.

Is this the CUBE the Alien Robots were searching for in "Transformers 1"?
the concept looks and sounds interesting, although I am not buying the 'vertical forest' idea. It is not a MUST to have all "green" ideas in one composition in a bid to make the building "green". Extreme contrast in facade themes might distort the unity of the composition. Perhaps the planted terraces could be toned down a notch.
