Kingdom Tower is a serious proposal as of today. i would not consider it unbuilt, especially not since there are news on foundation work to begin soon.

They all look really awesome, too bad they haven't been built, especially the more futuristic ones

New tower in Rotterdam

Hello all,

Here is my contribution:



In 2001 a new plan was presented to create a new tower in Rotterdam. It would have become the biggest tower of Europe and it would attract 5 milj. people every year...
Unfortunately it was rejected because there wouldn't be enough capacity to handle 5 milion extra people.

Was Volkshalle a Nazi proposal?

Most of those towers look hideous so I'm glad they never got built. My vote goes to Volkshalle, that would have been a truly iconic dome and an architectural wonder.
