Looks like a good design effort, and does have a surprise element attached to it........

yes, what a fabulous skyscraper.so unique. so is it 484m or 482m?
for those intrested in dimensions. Burj al alam is only 39m wide at narrowest mid section. that has to tne thinnest in world for a 500m tower?
Its base = 68m wide ,while top section = 49m wide. Its actually roof top or lev 104 = 448m.
cheers

This design is totally nuts - you have to be excited by it. But am I the only one who thinks the podiums of many supertalls are fairly banal and don't do justice to the ambition of the rest of the structure. This render is not very detailed but the podium just looks like a boring glassy mall.

[QUOTE=Krazy]previous proposals for burj al alm



This is a bit more like it. Why did this get the chop? Much more exciting on the street.

I know.... but surely they can do better. It's like all the thought goes into what's up top and nothing into the street level.

wouldnt something that tall and thin be horribly innefficient as an office building? especially with the narrowing going on in the center. i think it does look nice but will they have a hard time making money with such a design?

Compared to 101, sears and the WTC mabey.
But compared to Shanghi this aint that bad. Thinning of the floor plates there is extream.

This is a huge building so it can afford to have reduce it's floor plates because still they are fatter than alot out there. Anyway this a land mark building floor plate shape and size are not the attraction, behing spread over floors is a part of office life. Stairs fix that problem.

So this building can be finacially sound.
