Great American Tower in Origami

Like everyone else downtown, I've been watching the crown go up on the newest tower in Cincinnati. From some vantage points, ie: Mt Auburn/Mt Adams, I find it it is disturbing. But from the river, as in this origami it presents a decent face:
Found here(PDF) an advert for Oldcastle.

BTW, the view of this building from 4th street (when you look up at all of that 40+ stories of flat glass) was exactly what Frank Lloyd Wright meant when he called modernist boxes "flat chested".
