I don't like the looks of the London Bridge Tower at all. I dunno how people here are saying it looks great. It's weird and nasty. It'll give you the creeps if you see it in the city.

From what has been shown until now I'd go with Kuwait's Capital project tower.

That tower you think is in Kuwait IS Vision Tower in Brisbane. Go to the thread on the Kuwait tower & you can clearly see that the model of the tower is completely different to the render.

What? where are you from?

London bridge tower looks great because it was designed well, it is tall, it is simplistic from one angle and more complicated from another, it is a great piece of architecture.

Dubai.

Yeah it's tall and simple, but it's plain ugly! This is all subjective anyway, so you reserve the right to like it, if you're able to.

Dubai eh? So you think that they are th only ones who are allowed high quality proposals. I would take The Shard over anything in Dubai anyday mate (sorry to other Dubaians, i mean no disrespect)

I know alot of people who love the shard.

Who here likes the Shard? If you do say Aye!

I don't really like a lot of Dubai's proposals.. I prefer Doha, Kuwait City, Vancouver and Tel Aviv.

Calm your bum down laddy

If he doesn't like it then he doesn't like it. I presonally love the Shard and I love loads of Dubai proposals too (Yes I do believe some compare to the Shard but only a few )

When are people going to realise that the render of Kuwait business city is not the right tower?

The London bridge tower looks just like the transamerica pyramid with glassy cover.

I'd say Kyiv's business district would be one of the nicest...











There's also a really nice skyscraper that is shaped like a trident (Ukraine's national symbol), when I find the pic I'll show you. It's also over 400m
