A quick post on something that caught my eye. After travelling to those cities of the skyscraper – Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Tokyo and now Seoul – I have been more than treated to seeing some of the world’s tallest buildings and landscapes full of huge tower blocks. In most cases these buildings are either tall rectangles or occasionally something more imaginative but, to me at least, not particularly pleasing on the aesthetic front. I was rather pleased then when my fieldwork brought me face to face with the newly built (2011) albeit uninspiringly named GT Tower in the Gangnam area of central Seoul. I love it.

I wonder if someone spits from the top whether it does serious damage?
