Update on Ambani's Greenscraper

Binyamin Appelbaum blogs on Boston.com about Mukesh Ambani's family skyscraper, A $2 billion dollar home. I first wrote about this last December, spotlighting a couple earlier designs for Ambani's Greenscraper, but here we have the latest visualization. I'm a little surprised that private skyscrapers are not a more frequent thing given the boom in urbanization and the growth of vital cities. In any case, I admire the greenscraper aesthetic and hope that we'll see more buildings incorporate vertical gardens, greenroofs, and so forth.

Pretty damn ugly to me. But if you meant eyecatchingly different and thought provoking...yeah I give you that.
