It's not crazy... it's nice. Indivisual.
Actually, from an engineering point of view, the structure is pretty typical of most other buildings in Singapore. It's a standard central elevator shaft core with cantilever floor slabs being supported out of the core. They just took out a couple of the lower floors slabs to make the design unique. The structure design itself is really quite sound.
You don't see this kind of design in office buildings because, office buildings aims to maximise space, and hence rental revenues.
Reminds me of the Telecoms building near NUS...is that building still there?
As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.
Pretty sure the building adheres to the stringent codes in sg, so it should be safe.
However, i find it an ugly piece of "ice cream" on a stick.
the central tower looks pretty thick at the base...i'm sure they worked their sums out before building...how boring is all the buildings are rectangular blocks right? like living in lego land already...

I think the durian is quite okay lah.... at least it's memorable.
But I do have my reservations about the tower coming up over the Orchard
MRT station. For a building that's supposed to be a landmark, the design
looks quite boring.
