Simply gorgeous. The lighting on the building is beautiful. Like others said the detail and quality of construction is superb.

Yeah, it's not just steel and glass slapped together. Then again I do love steel and glass skyscrapers but this building has a certain uniqueness to it.

Yah its converted me into a BIG FAN of the project - was never comfortable with it being right next to the grand mosque since eventually it will have to be bulldozed for the mosque's expansion -

BUT YES - Reminds me of those GRAND Art Deco buildings from NYC truly a lost Art.

Don't joke about the handicapped.
Btw. wot's so special about him? I got a Lacoste shirt, too...

But back to topic... it's nice to hear about good quality and detailling here on the thread, now. The reputation of the complex has grown during the last months... and many great pics here have changed some minds, I guess.

Wow! That is one of most amazing projects ever! Too bad Mecca doesn't allow non-Muslims to visit there.
