In all honesty...

A tower like this in USA belongs in St. Louis, MO. It fits there perfectly.

I LOVE THIS TOWER. What a beautiful, classy building. It is so simple in its elegance. I hope it gets built. The only thing that I doubt about this design is the horizontal elevator. My guess is that the top of the U would ultimately become an observatory of some kind. This is a skyline defining beauty, and would be the new "Gateway To America."

Does anyone else remember the show News Radio from the 90's? The character who owned the station,Jimmy James,was going to have a "double J's" skyscraper built.It was hilarious and this proposal reminds of that episode.I couldn't find an image anywhere to post to illustrate it.

plane attack

perhaps this way a plane attack is more difficult, because a terrorist wants to fly through the gate?


I think it could be also perfect for Donald Trump...with Air Force One he's flying through and he sings: "Made USA great again!"

When did architecture become a joke? This thing looks so stupid! Totally out of proportion and without any interaction with its surroundings.

Why is there a thread for this comedic relief of a building? Nobody is going to build it. It is stupid on so many levels it isn't even funny.

For New York it does not fit. I think that this building would be appropriate in Dubai.
