It looks like a boxy version of the SWFC. Abu Dhabi is very creative with their designs

Looks like a cross between SWFC and the UN HQ. I'm sure someone has already said that, but this is actually my first time noticing this tower. I think it looks great.

When the outer frame was unclad I was ready to file it under the most awful supertalls I had seen in my time on this forum. Damn, does that cladding make an overwhelming positive impact. Looks stunning now!

Those stark sides are really striking, and I would say in a good way. They make it seem so much more huge and powerful than it is. It reminds me of the Monolith from 2001 Space Odyssey.

Is there another smooth rectangular vertical surface so huge anywhere else in the world?
