Is this the same type of canopy material used here in Chicago for Navy Pier ?

There's definitely a render somewhere. Check the saudi forum.

I have to admit it looks sort of out of place, however i guess it is needed. It may look better if they build more buildings around it with more spacing as well.

With all the people going there resources shouldnt be an issue. What is needed is vision. I think the people going there need better accomodation.


P.S. This forum is slow today.

The new render shows how humongous is the thing... And how ugly is the top.

The buildings are Arabian style and I like that a lot. The problem is the top of the main tower. The golden box with huge clock and weird cone with horns on the top is... ehm... The older version was MUCH better.

Old version:

I agree with you,what do they expect?The top is rather fanciful though but the rest of the building is Arabian and in keeping with the local vernacular

I think the whole problem lies with the cresent on the top. The Islamic cresent should be tilted and not placed like a horn. It looks really gothic.

I really love everything about this building except for the top. It's like taking a body of a beautiful woman like Monica Bellucci and replacing the head with that of a man like Bill Gates or Donald Trump. ******* ugly.

I hope they surprise us with topping the building out with the original design. I love the updates and the style of this tower fits in very well with the surroundings in my opinion.

Just imagine they stopped the construction of the main tower right today and started knocking the other ones down. Now THAT would be a pleasant surprise, and would fit very well with the surroundings! A masterpiece!

This is not possible. Design has been changed officially but yes I agree with many people here.. it would be better if it was a real cresent instead of this horn (aka cresent).
