I think the base is unique and would look okay with proper materials. It's that atrocious crown that's worrying.

Interesting....

I won't negatively judge until I actually see it under construction unlike all the others bashing it now.

Does that mean that you're hoping that they won't build it according to the plans shown here?

Never seen anything like that.

Sometimes there are good reasons you don't see anything like that.

It's like home decor ornamental piece or something on a colossal scale.

Doesn't "grozny" mean terrible in Russian? (as in Ivan Grozny.)

There's a similar word in Romanian meaning terrible. I guess the building fits.

Well, it's certainly unique. Without the base and the crown I would like this tower. Unfortunately, they will draw all attention away from the middle section.

I usually like the type of Towers that most call tacky. I like almost all of the Towers in Dubai.

BUT!

Even my eyes burned when i saw this thing. The Rendering for this skyscraper looks absolutely horrible. it even gives the Al Yaqoub tower tower a very good run for its money.

The base looks like a Brazier you would expect too see in Transylvanian Dungeons. And then it gets to an good classical 70s us style skyscraper but that dozent match the base at all. and then comes the crown with more transylvania, mixed up with modern performance art that only looks good or logical if your high on something.

all in all Tottaly horrible. lets hope they build the 70s style main part first before the bottom crazyness. And then run out of money after they put up only the centre mast on the crown. and cladding of main part .

on the bright side tho If this gets built no one call Dubai Tacky anymore
