..monolithic, the word that comes to mind when seeing this building..

The Williams Tower (formerly the Transco Tower) is a skyscraper located in the Uptown District of Houston. It was designed by architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee, in association with Houston-based Morris-Aubry Architects, and erected in 1983. The tower is among Houston’s most visible buildings. The building is the 4th-tallest in Texas and the 23rd-tallest in the United States. When it was built, in 1983, it stood as the tallest skyscraper located outside a city’s central business district.

i said ‘wow’ but i think monolithic is probably a bit more descriptive and definitely equally applicable. those dark lines really draw your eye up and up and up don’t they 🙂

I’m glad I read that Houston story. I thought if I missed this in NYC I was going senile! Nice upward view. Love the golden tone of it. Almost looks like it should be multiple images as it’s so vertical. Really nice job.
