This building is another example of "Mine's bigger than yours." Its only there to show the world it can build taller than the west.

Fantastic!

Although I question the logistics of this building, I admire the architects behind it.
In my opinion Muslim/Asian architects are the most ambitious, they are full of ideas!

My main criticism for this building, besides being kitsch, is that it doesn't appear to line up straight with the Mosque. It looks awkwardly placed. I think this tower will look better with the soon-to-be-constructed extensions behind it.
