What a beautiful project, what is being achieved in highrise contruction at the moment is jaw dropping. Many cities arround the world are joining the skyscraper club. Its not just about hight, design maters too. Its a real fantastic time to be on Architecture forums.

I must be honest, this is probably one of the ugliest, hasty constructed building that I've seen in my lifetime. I mean no offense too the muslims that pray and find worship in the beautiful building which is laid out below.

I'm dreading the crown. It's going to look tacky and will probably get zapped to shit in thunderstorms.

I think it's beautiful as well. The design fits very well with the existing architecture of the city as well as the mosque.

The level of detailing is just phenomenal.

Shows what can be achieved when a great level of attention is payed towards some of the finer aspects of design and construction.
