you expect this kind of architecture to be built in norway or denmark, but not in saudi arabia. lol somehow it doesnt fit at all... but maybe its only a very strange model.. seems to have some tour signal influence. HUGE!

The design isn't bad, I suppose, just very unusual.

Please create thread titles with a little more care. It's a lot of work for me to fix everything. Please have look here how to do so: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/announ...?f=1718&a=1125

As for the project, how can it be approved if they're not even done designing it?

Some skyscrapers are already half built before their design is finished.

this is part of a larger development,it's like the free trade zone in central Jeddah,the whole project is 7,000,000 square m.
including the developing the Historic Jeddah city..check the whole project's thread :
CENTRAL JEDDAH DEVELOPMENT







by the way,at the moment,they're studying "Jeddah municipality and City Center Development Company CCDC" which design is better for the trade zone in the project..this one or (The Golden Towers) which consist of 4 X 312 m + 1X +500 + 1X +600 (they're the ones used in the advertising video and in these renders:










*)the credit for the previous images goes to jh1

Too bad someone beat you to it

Anyway, these renders look very - what's the word - 'intriguing'. Can't really fathom what it would look like if it were built.
