Interesting Dichotomy

It´s interesting the dichotomy that occurs here.  On the one hand you have this really cool design and concept of a sustainable sky-scraper.  On the other you have it being financed and built in the location of the most audacious and arrogant example of wealth and exploitation in the history of human kind.  Exciting or terrifying?
