I wouldn't say they are that similar, but still, the Burj is a incredible tower, and I love the design

I dont know.… I see something compeletly different. To me, the Burj and the Illinois are to different buildings besides the top.
IMO:
Burj: Supertall
Illinois: Masterpiece

But I see where your coming from.

And I like buildings of all kind of shapes. They just have to be beautifull, simple

About Sky City I repeated this many times. It has to be understood that its design was sacrificed in the name of simplicity and fast construction. The developer himself stated on the official site that it never supposed to be a landmark but an affordable place to live for masses. To build it fast and cheap it will be constructed from prefabricated elements which is the main factor limiting its design. I agree, it's ugly, but it's suppose to be

Yet still, some finds it most beautifull building in the world
