I keep hoping, wish and dreaming that they just build that thing someday. And show the people behind The Tower what a real record breaking tower should look like. But anyway....

Wow! I love the simplicity and open space in those interior renderings. I don't think the cladding looks too terrible either.

If this project is still alive, why don't we get more information about it? Only these few renders, not one render shows the whole tower. No further advertisment, no new videos, nothing.
I strongly hope they come up with more concrete signs that they actually will build it.

And I presume, you can stand for your point? Let me explain mine. This is not quite architectural design - 1. This is not practical - 2. It has little idea behind it - 3. I mean, it would be an OK'ish design for one of 78 towers of 26 clusters. Certainly this design would suit Al Mas tower (stuffed crystals). But for an iconic tower as such - it sucks more than completely.

Well, it's not. It has 2 elements of beauty, but still very far from being beautiful. According to The Analysis of Beauty, it's actually ugly. Plus, it will be dirty. In UAE climate, sloped curtain-walls collect huge amounts of dirt before the next cleaning batch. And dirty towers are always ugly.

there are no excepted standards what is beauty and what is ugly. To make an popular example: my best friend is in love with a women with around 150kg. For me she looks ugly (only from the outside, because she is a very kind and smart person).
Take a look at the history of architecture (and philosophy) Some folks don't like the neo gothic style (f.e. Houses of Parliament or the Parliament in Budapest) For others including me it's wonderful and extremly beauty What's beauty and what's not is always subjective.
The "Analysis of Beauty" is a concept i don't believe in. It's depending in what time, situation, culture and so on you're living.
To come back to the Burj, it's a poor model without much details. If it's ugly for you that's your opinion, please don't make this a standard of beauty

So this design is like your friend's overweight girlfriend I guess.
Pretty for a few but overall it's clumsy and disappointing for a structure that's - supposedly - trying be iconic.

For me the design is beautiful I like the plane surfaces and the crystal like shape. With a black cladding it will be like a black diamond: rare and nice.

It's ridiculous to build such a large downtown-suited tower next to suburban family housing.
Seriously, WTF? Dubai is artificial and ignorant beyond comprehension.

The foundations or piles for the Nakheel tower are finished long time a go. They can start with the tower above ground if they will .
