Why don’t they add angles, dimension, a mix of material to these buildings? They just go straight up. Very boring.
One thing I've always admired about the classic Art Deco skyscraper is the three-tier massing, with the three sections getting narrower as you go up like a mountain. By contrast, seeing a big rectangle with the same cladding pattern repeated from top to bottom can be boring and uninspiring, unless it's an exceptional design like the TD Centre.
