Not a fan, I don't like many Istanbul towers to be honest. Diamond is real nice though and DTI is one of the best projects in europe, but this isnt up to standards

dm, maybe you could put the name of the project in the title? Great 'scraper(s) though, although I'd kill for a more original idea...

According to "skyscrapermaniac rules" they are "twins" as long as less than 1/3 of their height is connected.

The 3 skybridges connecting the two towers have a total combined height which is less than 1/3 of the towers, so they are definitely "twins".

Seriously, no. I just don't like it. If an ugly tower gets built in London, I won't like that either. This just looks like alot of other istanbul/middle eastern projects. Not EVERYTHING has to be twin towers you know.

it's my opinion eemreee, and I dont care if you think I'm saying because I am jealous that it aint in London, believe you me I'm not. Plus we learned of a 230m tower tower in London today which in my opinion is nicer.

Now, I'll let you get back to discussing this.

Doubt it. The renders have no standards so how can we say the building does. It looks awful.The glass saves it a wee bit. This is St Georges Tower in London, most desteste it yet it's arguably twice the tower this is. I dont see what you can like about it other then the height.
