It is unconventional... I am not so sure I would call this imaginative... In any case those traits alone don't make good design. When a design is unconventional you need to work quite a bit harder and really know the subtlety of your craft because it's a lot easier for the design to turn out to be crap. This tower is the architectural equivalent of someone mixing their favorite foods together to make I don't know say.. macaroni and cheese with peanut butter.. and then calling themselves a chef.

Can you imagine what a bowling ball would do:

I think the renders are just not reconsidered and ''unfinished''.
They will solve this problem, I think.....and hope

I don't see how they could do that without a total redesign.

At first this seemed incredibly dangerous to me as well. However then I remembered that all tall building with balconies have that same opportunity. Anything dropped or thrown from a balcony could land on somebody in the street below. At least in this scenario the chances of hitting someone are less. Balconies are almost always not occupied while sidewalks and streets frequently are.

Despite construction clearly visible it's obvious it's not being built, because it's in the desert. You can't beat my logic because then you're pro-Saudi!

Yeah this is not going to be build anytime soon. It was proposed during Dubai's crazy building frenzy pre crisis (around 2008). There was at least 1 skyscraper proposed for Dubai almost every day including crazy designs like this, a triplet skyscraper, a huge pyramid, the dancing towers, huge ice crystal like towers, tentacle towers and even a building in the shape of the Death Star from star wars Those times were insane.

I know people who used to work in Dubai's Building Department pre crisis, they told me that representatives of some shiekhs used to apply for permits for their skyscrapers and cancel them some days later just because their cousins applied for a permit of an even higher skyscraper, then they go back and redesign the whole thing and so on. Then 2008 happened

There were never such proposals (the bolded ones). As for the rotating tower, it was NOT a Dubai proposal, it was a "project" proposal from an Italian "architect"
