I really like the design actually. I think it's a little too high for the location though. It looks a little fat inthe 1st render also IMO

not bad, but i think who ever designed it spent a bit to much time on it. Its over done a little bit. i say cut back on the details and make look simpler with less curves and more glass facade. After construction this building has the potential to be real ugly bulky kinda tower.

i really like it.
2 concerns: a bit too "over" like someone said. it makes it look aggressive
then the base of the building, i dont like that. that low rise should go , and be replaced by a park

Can someone explain the design concept/parti?

Oh yeah, and if thi site specific, it's way out of scale and context with its surroundings, so I hope that's been taken into account.

And I bet this would be very expensive to construct and finish out, as each floorplate is different. Additionally, if it's condos (as it appears to be), the floorplan production and sales/marketing will be complex and costly endeavors. This will inevitably lead to a high dollars per square ft/meter cost, which could hamper the project's ability to compete if constructed in competitive market.

This building is multi-function building, it contains mall and hotel and office building.
The client wants an Icon building conatins all those functions.
i agree with u in saying that every floor plan is diffrent but it is very simple, if u concentrate carefully you will find that the floor plan is very simple and that is the wonderful of this building.
Anyway thanks for your comment

It reminds me of this 49 stories twin building complex, that just started being build in Dubai:



Maybe the same architect?

i love the concept .. its totally new, unique, and interesting.
i love the building too

however, i would have to say that is slightly too intricate for my likings.. looks sort of like the ribs of a skeleton from some angles. maybe u can try using a glass facade?

I do like it a lot, but I agree that it needs more glass.
