There are windows, but you can hardly see them. They are the "darkest" triangles.



What is the name of the building?

well... the "architecture" of Fernando Peixoto seems like a JOKE, personally..I don't like them. Maybe for a sclupture is ok, but for a building I found it agressive and out of context.....

In the case of the STRANGE building of Dubai, I think that is a GREAT JOKE!!
It makes me laugh, jajajajjajajajaja.

Im sure if you ask around you will be pointed in the right direction. The architects name is Fernando Peixoto. Bare in mind there are several buildings by him, it would be great if you could get pics of some of the other as well.

Again thank you!!

I hate being in this situation, not knowing if this is real or not!!

It looks like a render but then you can see reflections in the windows which match up perfectly!! We really do need someone to post new pics and info about the tower :-(

Brilliant.
Some are crap though, but a handful of these are absolutely incredible. I think I would like the Melbourne building without those blue rings. They break up the facade, and I really like that facade.
