I like it! I can't tell what's going on in the middle (I hope it's glass), but it's highly original, and works. It almost evokes a person bracing himself against the desert wind as his robe billows behind him. I wonder what the inspiration for the architect was...

The tower in the renders looks Incredible. I hope everything goes fine with the construction. Kuwait needs such projects to boost its tourism industry to further limits.
