Very unusual tower. I like the bottom, which looks like it was made of wrought iron in 19th century Paris. I like the top, which looks like a 1930s vision of futurism. But the middle looks awful, and worst of all doesn't go with either of the other two parts (which don't go with each other either).

If this is a joke, then it's a pretty good one - a biting satire on the sometimes outrageous state of 21st century architecture. If it's not a joke then it looks like the ultimate Frankenstein building, made up from the leftover parts of other towers.

Normally I love Baku architecture, but this is horrible! Please tell me this is a joke. I'm laughing. Ha, ha, ha.

They aren't all ugly projects- the Flame Towers, SOCAR Tower, and The Crescent project come to mind.

I believe those renders are not final and the project will be changed. For now it does not look appealing to me :S

Azerbaijan Tower is beautiful

This kind of design doesn't fit a +250m building. It looks quite unusual and a bit unique, but sometimes that isn't really a good thing
