The moment I've read the words "Saudi minister for tall things" I new it had to be a satire.

Look at the picture above , the proportions are all wrong. The glass panes of the cladding are about 3 to 4 times taller than the other two buildings per floor. Or look at the lobby floors. They are completely out of proportion.
The building is made for Na-Vi people from planet Pandora which are about 5 meters tall.

It also MAY show something more. I mean if high profile representatives united to bash this project together this can be the first real sign that this project is not that unrealistic as we (well at least I) thought. I still have no doubt the designs we've seen are just poor concepts and still am waiting for something real, but this news points some light at this project.
Man, you just super-owned yourself for taking that article seriously. Sorry man but it's the truth.

Let's be realistic about Azerbaijan's aim to build the tallest tower in the world... on a man-made island!

At least Burj Khalifa was built inland, so would the Kingdom Tower. And seriously, both these towers look a lot better than the giant turd-looking thing Azerbaijan plan on building.

But goodluck anyway.

Yeah at least several others did it as well But yeah it's no excuse

I think I wouldn't take it seriously if it was about US or an European country. I don't know maybe I assumed everything is possible in saudi arabia (even ridiculous politicians) since they build things like Kingdom Tower or don't allow womens drive. Or I took some names as an error in translation (that ministry of Tall things ) or just read the article fast. Other than that English is obviously not my native language and I'm still far from mastering it. I often read articles fast and get from them the general idea wthout recording peoples or institutions names I'm not 200% sure how institutions are being named in English either. I can tell you if I heard "ministry of tall things" directly translated to polish there is no way I would have taken it seriously And last but not least I didn't expect satire article posted by hater, big supporter of this project.

Yep, thats my useless defense

Holy S... what an ugly building. I wouldn't want to look at a giant turd in the horizon everytime I go out of my house...

Good luck Baku...

In respect to my previous comment, no intentions to offend anyone and I am sorry if I may seem like a troll but this tower just overwhelms me...

I said it many times and I will say it again. Let me see the design with the name on it then we can talk. Now we can just keep joking because its all about this tower is right now. And if they ever build it once again: There is no way it will look like on the latest renders

For some perspective I can tall you for instance that nakheel towers first designs (several years before the construction started) were already made by renowned architect studio. The same with kingdom tower. The creator of this we still don't know which means if it ever gets its REAL design it most likely will be far from what we can see now.

I think so too. The "Greenland Center" in Suzhou is as well represented as a boring box in the initial proposal with final design presented later. The design is BTW fantastic!

hey, what i said was actually a well-thought pun. Let us think about everything works well. Then this project will start ground works ~2018 when the island is pretty much done, the rising may start in 2019. and when it is far above in the sky the cladding may start a few years later

Yes ,you are right. It reminds me of the biggest house of the tycoons.


Excuse me, but even 25% of the GDP of Azerbaijan wouldn't be enough to built this.

i agree, it is all about the design though, if they change their mind and instead build just a not as big ass tower with a big spire they may actually be able to finish it in 4 years
