I don't know what kind of drugs some of those architects take, but they definitely have to reduce their consumption.

All of these projects are just visions- not actual projects which were cancelled.

Book Tower Phase III, Detroit, 1929

How is this for a long-dead 81 story supertall:


Credit:atdetroit.net/forum

While some sources have given heights less than 1000 feet, the existing 38 story Book Tower is 475 feet (145 meter) high which gives a floor height of 12.5 feet. If the 81 story book tower had the same floor height, it would be 1012 feet high (about 310 meters).

This was an actual project which would have been built had the Great Depression not intervened. It was canceled after the stock market crash. Phase I and II (the 13 story and 38 story portions visible on the right in the postcard image) were built.

Rejected project by DGLA for the Tour Signal in La Dfense.I personally loved that 'Gaudiesque' tower, I think it would have blended perfectly in the financial district .


Nouvel's Tour sans fins, 425m, approved but cancelled owing to a lack of fundings in 1990.


Tour Signal, 301m, another approved project by Nouvel but finally "cancelled" according to the Epad president (organization running La Dfense district)for the same reason, however Jean Nouvel firmly denied it and asserted that he will build Signal in the next few years when the market recovers...

these are just good in pictures! I like the current burj khalifa better, the previous design was just a straight standing block!

Sure we're talking about the same 'Dubai'?
