I believe people are looking at this Structure the wrong way.

Mecca is a ancient city with old faniscinating Islamic Tradition and Buildings. This Clock reflets it's importance and it's old tradition by looking old and out of place :/

I'll admit it isn't the nicest structure out there but i'll still take a pic of it with me next to it

it's just hard to understand how massive this building is. it has such a wide base AND is so tall. it's just amazing and the design is extremely underrated, this building is a beauty in my eyes, a symbol of what can be done and what is yet to come in modern architecture.
