What’s the location.

Why do you have the boxy windows in the first pic is structural or is it for looks? Also what are the materials you guys are using for the structure concrete/steel?

I like the design but I don’t think it will fit in every location, if its for as some one mentioned Dubai then maybe. But if it’s for New York as some one else pointed out there might be a problem with the color scheme. As it stands now the colors with brown/white fit better in a more arid or resort environment. Metro environment maybe silver/black.

It is different

It has an egyptian, anthropomorphic feel to it....borrowing from Lake Point Tower and Al Falusiaha (I can't spell it, the tower in Saudi Arabia with the ball in the top)

I like it though, it gives you a safe feeling, the last pic posted looks like a giant egyptian god watching over the sea....maybe get a little lighthouse in the summit, the way the Eiffel Tower put a beacon on the top to the get the full land-sea interaction thing going on

Perhaps use the three things as columns, and bound them by truss beams, and for the curve part, use a cantiliever structure.
