This is a 3D model I made called the Tour de Olympique meaning Tower of Olympic in French. It is 2757ft tall making it taller than Taipei 101 and the Burj Dubai! Also would have the most stories of any other building at 225+ floors. Would probably be used for commercial but have apartments on top. Also included is a observation deck at the very top.
From the pictures it is hard to tell but the tower is a complete spiral to the top which gives it totally different looks from different perspetives.
Compared to Taipei 101 and Burj Dubai:
If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love it. I'll post updates when they come.
I have updates farther down on the page. please comment

its looking good (shape)
i personally hate all these "texture only" towers!
its so easy to add floors and so on..a bit time for a model must be .. renders would be better too
anyway good model..

Tour de Olympique means Tower of Olympic
Olympian's tower is Tour de l'Olympien instead
If it's Olympian Tower, then it's Tour Olympienne
If it's Olympic Tower, then it would be Tour Olympique
As to the tower.
It's nice, but somehow looks unfeasible, if it's of the same circumference as Burj Dubai's base, then the tower itself, curving like that, would be very thin, and having to withstand some incredible wind vortex forces with everything concentrating in that middle fold
Lookwise, it's awesomely cool looking

Good job, Master Oz...your design is nice... Only you need to detailed a little bit more

I like Tour d´Olympique, but i think it is too thin.....

The design is very good, lovely shape. But it needs a lot more detail work and some cladding...

Nice shape, but lacks detail, also doubt it will be structural sound, unless the main core i.e the striaght part of the tower should be solid concrete.

I made some updates to include:
-no building textures
-elevator shafts/ supports
About the definition of the name I first used a online translator (darn those things)
That's probably why I'm getting a B in French
Thanks for the translation

simply the best :D
even if i dont like the glass material (but that got nothing to do with the model)

That's much better! :okay:

Thanks for the replies!
