This is for me the one of the best skyscraper designs around the world. Will go to Dubai just to see this tower.

Doesn`t the most right end of the wall seems a bit crooked?? Its not 100% straight if you look at the edges?? Will it be clad in glass or it will stay exposed concrete?

Exposed concrete???? Here even the bridges are not exposed concrete, how can a building be?

The side walls will be covered in tiles, the rest will be covered in glass ... and do you think there is no render of how the tower is going to look, has been posted so far?

BTW, there's nothing wrong with the edges, is either an optical ilusion or something related to the resizing of the original picture.

Does Anyone Know What the Widest Supertall In The World Is?

I know that Hong Kong has some very wide residential buildings, 'The harbourfront' is the biggest i think, but which is the widest supertall? The Sears Tower?

I also thought that edge is not sharp due to picture resizing but i wasnt shure. Side walls look some kind of grey on some renders so i thought that there will be no glass damm i`m stupid It goes up fast...

cross-posted in Burj Dubai thread - but this pic has both buildings in.
I thought it'd be good to see how tall both are when complete...

Burj Dubai should be the right height - i lined up all the mechanical floors
The Index - I lined up the walls so it should be fine, the render was slightly rotated but otherwise it seems fine.
I used a 50% transparency on the renders so you can see the construction underneath...
good work on the original photo...

The concrete is being clad with tiles as you all can see in this pic:



Now i really wonder how those tiles look from up close, since on this picture it looks really boring and grey.
Actually I really like the rough looks of the bare concrete, anyway we will see what it looks like eventually.
But maybe one of our 'updaters' can make a closeup pic of the tiles? That would make me really happy.

btw the 'updaters' are doing a very freakin good job , ty very much all of you.
