It is an incredibly beautiful structure and its design has been hugely successful - although I always thought it was a bit too stout, should be taller, hence slenderer.
It's problems lie with the finish and the lighting.
I saw the lit tip for the first time in 'real life' yesterday - oh dear, now I know what you're all talking about.
I see what Jack means about the lights (what ones are working) glittering as it sways - very effective.
It was lashing rain yesterday evening and there was 3 rivers of water plummeting down the 120 metres of its profile, and I'm such a child - had to go over and put my hand underneath one of them, it filled with water in about half a second! (and then overflowed over my feet)
Incredible, esp as the torrents then disappear down the tiny gap between it and the base, on top of the LEDs beneath.
