Charles, as the owner company announced on its twitter account, this event was to celebrate the completion of building the tower but not the official opening...
It seemed they wanted to get advantage of the magical date of 11-11-11...
I hope that the official opening event will be more creative and colorful than this one...

I think the lighting is somewhat overdone. Perhaps a line of light at the curved edges of the tower would underline its phenomenal shape better...

The spiral light pattern is best I reckon, fits the tower perfectly.
I think this may be my favourite supertall, at least until the Shanghai Tower is done anyway!

How will the tower look at night when the lights are on in addition to lights in individual floors/rooms?

I imagine they would clash somewhat.

Origami?

Thanks Thamerium for your shots! Al Hamra has something of an origami about itself, as if it is paperfolded by a magical hand!
Anyway, Kuwait seems on the right track as to supertalls
Kuwait is SO different to Dubai (in terms of people and mentality and atmosphere)

Great architecture this topper, perhaps the facade is too dark, but the shape and the lights in the evening are all perfect.
