This building is a blast!

A blast of bad taste, that is.

Because this website is dominated by anti-Muslim Americans.

I don't think so, I think it is because this design it's quite different to what we are used to see.

They just need to think out of the box, or the simply dislike it.

LOL. I'm Saudi and come from a Muslim background and I'm not the biggest fan of this project.

There is a difference between not being a fan and calling this the biggest monstrosity ever built or some other names that you can easily come across in this thread. "Ugly" is a term reserved for ugly stuff in my book, like the MetLife Tower in NY or Dubai's World Trade Center (the old one of course).

This, however, is an incredible project, fully succeeding in what this tower wants to accomplish. You may dislike certain things, like the clock and spire and size, if you are looking from the western perspective, or you may not even be a fan of this architectural style, but that does not diminish the achievement that AAB is. I, for one, also have buildings that don't appeal to me much design-wise, like Chicago's Trump Tower or Busan Lotte Tower, but I don't go mouthing off that they are the ugliest thing ever.
