Either you love Dubai or you hate Dubai. I love Dubai (I think it's not difficult to notice that)
It's of course not tacky, IMO. That's called variation and uniqueness!

Emirates twin towers looks like one building in this pic

I would've love to indulge u in a constructive discussion over what's tacky, but you are from NYC what makes you racist (jealous?) toward Dubai and in love with boxy and sad towers!
The moment you visited the thread of this tower that you consider tacky, you validated all my assumptions. You could've stayed away u know!

I would say this about Dubai's towers: Individually, many of them aren't the most elegant, but together they work outstandingly well as a skyline. Furthermore, there are actually quite a number of nice buildings amongst the city- buildings that's would look quite at home in any of the world's most respected skylines.

Not just beautiful, BK tower is gorgeous imo. One of the finest example of 21st century modern tower. Those who were dreaming of a Star Wars like tower, Burj Khalifa made their dream come true

Dubai's tower are unique and they just fit into this skyline. Rose Tower f.ex., would look totally misplaced in NYC skyline, but looks fantastic in Dubai!
The towers aren't tacky, they are interesting when you look at them and have many details and they look so creative (creative is the best word to describe them).
The NYC boxes looks like functional buildings, they look completely dead and boring and make deep shady street canyons..

What I don't get is why some never respect others opinion and taste!? Taste differs from one person to another and there is no right or wrong when it comes to it!For example, I never go to New York threads and start insulting their taste although I find them tasteless and sad! But out of respect to others opinion I stay away.

So why is so hard for some to do the same and have some morals and politeness!

All of them, who always criticize the architecture in Dubai should go away from here and keep writing in their NYC threads instead of beginning an argument.
If you don't like Dubai towers, why do you watch and check the threads? Because of waiting for an update to criticize the pics again and again?

It means they care about Dubai. They just want to see a good skyline. Thats why most people are here for. Sure, some people are trolls, but a lot of people are just concerned.
