Yeah, I have to agree, this design really isn't great. I'm pretty open to different styles in skyscrapers, but this is pathetic. It is the combination of elements that is bad here- if the top wider section was removed, it would look considerably better.

Irregardless, I would be very surprised if this was ever built- it looks like a stale proposal in the making.

Nice mushroom tower
Does it have anything related to the islamic culture ? It seems like something Mecca would gladly build ...

It looks like an oversized obeservation tower in an amusements park.

The design is actually based on medieval towers:

Remaking of something hostoric and scaling it up never works. Certainly not in tacky materials. It's like that big ben tower in Dubai or that tacky huge building in Mecca.
---------------------------------

Cut the dome off and make the above weird things giant landing strips for space ships and you have yourself a tower straight out of Coruscant

that top part is indeed terrible, it simply doesn't fit. the rest is ok so far, though it's not a masterpiece.

Fake postmodern ripoff of true historical structures.

with a nice cladding and better renders it might look okay actually. nice cladding might take away from its mushroom ***** shaped form.

Sometimes the results can be satisfactory like with Castalia in The Hague but usually not.

If it gets built as planned, this will be the funniest construction thread ever.

Seriously, this looks like something one would trap a damsel in distress in. It appears to be ripped straight from a cartoon.
