Infinity tower now confirmed to be 80F high and 330m.
www.infinitytower.com















Overall shape is a bit too similar to turning torso but the details are very different. I like it now.

Cities without a twister tower, raise your hands...
Copicats are everywhere! Not saying that's a bad thing, just noticing the emerging trend here.
I like the tower,the cladding is quite nice, sober and yet different.

It's a new style and nowadays it's popular.

There are lots of boxy buildings all around the world. Are you crabbing when you see a new boxy project? I don't think so!

Then What's wrong with turning towers?

By the way, If 80F Infinity tower will be 330M, 94F Dubai Towers Istanbul can reach 400M with a spire. (According to our lier&coward mayor, it will be 300M )

Sweet!

Looks nice, a continuance of the turning trend, I guess.

If You don't know architects are people who has to search for new shape new solutions.....obviously I mean good architects. For me it's a copy buildning nothing new and nothing special....for me.

Come on, maybe it's not new and special for you but it's special and new for Dubai also for New York and Istanbul.

Sure They are copy but I don't see any problem here.

I think SOM is definitely losing their touch with designs. Its like the WTC design with a different facade! Boring twisty! Oh well.

Uh, this came before Dubai Towers in Istanbul. This tower's known for 2 months now.

Anyway, I don't see what the problem is in building more twisting towers. Do we call georgian buildings shit because they all used triangular pediments and other features? Or what about box shaped skyscrapers. It must have been someone's original idea so then, only the first ever boxy skyscraper can be good architecture. :rolleyes:
