A detailed render might show some elegance. I might then say it's awsome.

only the good thing about this design is that it has 2 towers (twins) of 650 meters tall!

this totally 'blue sky' merely fantasy, i would bet my bottom dollar that this is just a pure concept and the city council are using it as a marketing ploy.

looking at the renders, u think they wud av paid a proper visual company to produce better images if there was any serious intensions. those renders look like there straight out of AutoCAD. lol.

I agree. Also, these towers are oversized - it's a big jump to go from 200+ something to 650m..... don't like it. And the towers look very much like minarettes on a mosque.
