Burj Dubai vs Al Burj

Well? Which is it then?
This isn't a poll about which one will be taller. Based on design which do you prefer?



Burj Dubai:








Al Burj:





If there was already a poll on this sorry. I've never seen one before

It depends on the final height of Burj Dubai. Not because I'm comparing their height, but BD looks stupid in a short stubby 700m form. It's gotta go at least 850m to put it into the right proportion.

If all things go well between now and another good few years, then there's no reason why not.
For various reasons I don't think it'll be as tall as they say it will but that's a different story.

Its a tough one. Burj Dubai looks very classic and nice, but I must admitt I'm more in to Al Burj's futuristic look.

I'm confused at how on earth Dubai are gonna fill all these towers they are building. Even with all this mass worldwide promotion I still don't think they'll achieve their goals. They are mad imo.
