PS: It's a f'ing vision like many others that have been brought forward during the last decades, starting with Lloyd's mile-high tower more then half-a-century ago. No one said it will be build or was thought to.

This building goes far through the clouds I think... I think if I am in the 300th floor I feel like I'm in a plane.

The building is turning up into the deep blue sky until it reaches 2.4 km!

(Up, and up and up...)

------------------

Height: 2.4 km (7874 ft)
Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Status: Vision
Floors: 400
Use: Mixed use
Structural Types: Highrise

I agree with ZZ-II: this topic has to be archived. Moderators, please unlist this from "Megatalls" section.

DUBAI | Dubai City Tower | 2400m | 7874ft | 400 fl | Vision

It is a VISION. That means that it is not going to happen

If anyone is ambitious enough to build such a tower is Dubai! This is for the time being a Vision

It's kind of too ridiculous from every point of view, even if a massive steel structure can allow such a fantasy. From the architectural POV, this "design" has many disadvantages and limitations that make it unfeasible. And I can't come up with quite many valid ideas why anybody would stick to this riband shape, rather than making the same height with a good, valid architecture. One of the symbolizing ideas is fire. If for any reason it has to symbolize some flame, then it can make sense for a limited group of people. Otherwise the helical bands are pointless enough.

It is "unfeasible" to your limited current understanding! In future generations what we know now will be outdated child's play to them. "Fantasy" and "ridiculous" were terms used by conformers before they started with Burj Khalifa. No one wants to have "valid" architecture in Dubai, Dubai doesn't conform to rules and norms, that what makes the city so special.

Did anyone in the 1920s think the towers below were ever going to be possible? I don't think so, and yet here we are:

Eventhough this is a visionary project, i think that we will build it in the future (i hope not too distant future). The main problem is the technology we need to build it, isn't discovered yet.

Or maybe i am too optimistic..

There is a difference between Fantasm and future expectation
We can hope we'll keep improving and bypass our current limit, but this would likely not evolve like we've imagined it.


Please look at how we saw the future during the 50-70th, seriously this is ridiculous !
There are plenty of vintage image we're i'm questioning what they smoked when they imagined it.
If few of them are good prediction, most of them are completely silly design, ugly by our standars , ineffective illogical or physically impossible, and on top of that we've made better stuff instead.
"hey in the future firefighter will have fairy like wings!"
"in the future we'll go on a daily basis to the moon with the lamest rockets ever"
"in the next century everything will look exactly the same, exept some random geometrical shapes here and here"
and so on...


We might be able in the future to build 2,4k hight towers , maybe with fancier shape, but if severals peoples here said the design have huge flaws, it will likely never be built

Looking at the fluid situation ( Oil collapse, China slow down, Trump trumpeteering) all over the world, this magnificent vision edifice may not rise.
