It reminds me of the Burj Al Alam in Dubai.

The architect is Hasan Sökmen, you could not expect anything better than this from him... Just look at his previous work and you'll see why he should only be allowed to design a circus...

I read an interview with him, he was pretty serious about this being the final design... only minor revisions would be done if necessary... He was saying his inspiration was the tulip, the symbol of Istanbul. The worst thing is he was saying the developer liked this design among others.

Such a shame for the beautiful Istanbul...

Looks OK, I think this one might look a lot better in reality than the render.
Is the middle building the real Chrysler, or the imitation in Dubai?

My first impression: It's a gigantic church tower, or something like that. But then i saw the combi that luci posted... and that is exactly how it is. Ugly.

Good for istanbul to have such a high tower. Bad for Istanbul to have such an ugly tower.

Not sure why so many people think its ugly. I'm not blown away by it but I wouldn't call it ugly.
The freedom tower, now thats an ugly building imo!

It seems like the reason most people don't like it, myself included, is because of the super kitschy 1995 Las Vegas hotel look; a look that I think most of us had hoped that the world had gotten away from.

Ah well, if they ditch the sky blue glass and go with something more muted, perhaps it won't look exceptionally terrible.....

[QUOTE=malec;33023712]Burj al alam is not getting built anyway so who cares if it looks like it.
