Well,Interesting poll results here.Sure it's hard to tell what these two Skyscrapers will look like until they're finished,for they are both under construction.But the renderings we've seen should be enough for most of us to decide.I love em both,and the results are almost neck and neck, but I'm gonna go with the Dubai because of it's awesome height,we at least know that it will be much higher than anything built or planed thus far..,but the SWFC definitly has a personality of it's own unlike any other.And of course there is Union Square that will be included among these giants. The next 5 years will be a fun time to be monitoring the progress of these great edifices.

SWFC by far. It is going to be one of the best in the world when finished. Burj Dubai is just tall, nothing more.

(Damn, I hate the attitude among some of the Dubai forumers around here. I'm really starting to dislike Dubai because of its up-nose attitude. Shanghai is going to be a world class alpha city in a pretty close future - Dubai will remain the Disneyland it is today.)

I had to pick Burj Dubai and not only for its height but I absolutely love the design. It's very exotic and although it's huge, it still looks elegant. It's my favourite project out of anything at the moment.

Don't take this wrong however. The SWFC is an incredible building too.

you are exactly the person you describe in your statement, except that you are not a dubai forumer.



So Burj Dubai vs SWFC, well i already voted BD because of its very sleek design, which is unique , even more than SWFC s design imo, its height of course, and the surrounding with a beautiful old town, 50 high to midrises, a lake wit the highest fountain in the world and finally the largest mall in the world, all in a masterplanned community.

SWFC has a great design, in terms of architecture it might even beat BD;
but don't forgot that SOM was referring to a desert flower when designing BD, so there is a point behind the shape as well.
all in all , i prefer BD by far actually.

Design wise, the Burj is pretty complex, definitely not a pipe.. I could draw SWFC with the square base, a couple of freehand lines and the hole very quickly. If I were to draw the Burj Dubai with it's 3 sided base, the multiple subsections x3 and the spire it would take a lot longer.. The Burj being taller is just a bonus.

I agree with Dubaiflo...staff, you have a terrible attitude...notice how Dubai forumers don't go out of their way to bash SWFC but yet u do it to Dubai. Keep your damn negative attitude toward yourself, it is not welcomed at all. By you calling Dubai a disneyland, shows me u know nothing about the city.

Burj Dubai


SWFC would have won, but I'm not a huge fan of the new top
