First of all, I congratulate you for your beautiful presentation
If I examine the plan from the point of view of concept, I must say that it is a huge volume that encompasses the urban facade and surrounding buildings. You pointed out that "the introduction of a new building into city fabric, huge in scale and strong in image, is permissible only on condition that this building is the leading one and surpasses all other buildings of the location in its architectural quality", but if there is no respect for Don't care about the surrounding buildings, especially the old buildings and the urban context, over time the urban context will face a crisis.

The meaning of communication is not only simple access, but it is to be seen in the city, the audience can communicate with it. And in my opinion, all these things cannot be violated just to emphasize art in this project and place public spaces at the highest height.
It is a good idea that you considered separate blocks for different operators. But due to the fact that the subject of your plan is the plaza, I did not see any design and creativity in the design of the plaza and the connection between the blocks, and the focus was on the building itself.
