I can't agree more .. this will look too thick once is done and I still can't take that pyramid shape on the top it just doesn't look right. we might as well start calling it "the fatso obelisk" since I doubt they will change anything to make it better

your absolutely right .. the black cladding tricked me plus the previous render looked as if it won't have as much glass as the newer point of view we got.

It's usually called Constructivist architecture. Particularly this design belongs to a branch of Constructivist architecture, which is called Shit architecture. The most distinctive features of Shit architecture - are the absence of any valid idea and a poor implementation of an idea. Clearly, this design was made by someone who has heard very little about architecture.

Usually I have a good memory, but I still clicked on this thread by accident again. Hope this time it stays filed in the "don't need to see"-section of the brain.

I will only be upset, if it gets cladded according to the pictured "design". Before that stage, every crap is possible to save. Except The Opus, of course, which is destined to be a monument of nonsense forever. Because there cannot exist a conscious mind in this (or any parallel) reality that can come up with a good, valid, and workable idea for its design.

Sofitel signs its largest property in the Middle East in Dubai


Sofitel has signed its largest property in the Middle East with development partner MKM Commercial Holdings LLC: the Sofitel Dubai Wafi, which is expected to open in early 2019.

Sofitel Dubai Wafi will feature 501 luxury guestrooms, inclusive of 86 suites, ranging in size from 55-625m2, in addition to 97 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom serviced residences to be operated on an extended-stay basis.

The property will offer a number of dining concepts including an Asian speciality restaurant, gastro pub, a destination restaurant, bar and lounge on the 43rd and 44th floors, a French lobby café, an all-day restaurant and a pool bar.

It will have a SoSpa facility, a comprehensive gymnasium, outdoor pools, private cabanas and a kids club. Business travellers will have access to 10 meeting rooms in addition to a 1,115m2 ballroom.

Located right next to the Raffles Dubai, also owned by MKM Commercial Holdings, the properties will offer some facilities on a cluster level.

AccorHotels has 39 existing properties in the UAE, in addition to 23 others under development. In the Middle East and Egypt, AccorHotels currently operates 96 hotels encompassing 28,800 rooms across the luxury to economy segments.

The Group’s regional network is expected to double in number, bringing over 25,000 additional rooms and nearly 2,400 branded residences to the Middle East.
