The twisting shape reminds me of Absolute World in Mississauga, possibly the The Twisting Torso in Malmo.

The facade, while not classically beautiful is unique. No point making everything the same.

I really liked the facade in the original renders, with the sort-of-random window widths. It looked really cool, even a little futuristic. The regular window widths detract from the look, I think; they seem rather boring in conjunction with the sleek twisting form.

I really like the shape (obviously) but the facade is really disappointing. As you said above me, the render windows/facade looked really cool.

Great photo though I have to say too much of the same architecture wise. Someone needs to shake it up a little.

They're all residential towers with balconies. Less varieties are to be expected in such cases.

'the' and 'architecturee' are just renders. Come back when they'll be completed. The ''greatest' is actually THE crappiest , so only the 'evil' has some merits.

Now you do realize that only a tiny minority has to be architectural wonders, so why don't you post how your average residential tower in Vancouver, Toronto, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Miami, Warsaw etc looks like?

All examples I mentioned exist or are u/c except just one (which still is a complete design that can be build). And if you dislike world one then I'm actually glad that our tastes differs since this is one of the finest architecture in supertall section. I'm guessing you don't like it since it's too minimalistic, lacks tacky crown and cheap decorations, it's only strange that next thing you say is that not every building needs to be architectural wonder

This is one amazing piece of architecture. I hope they will do something with the crown to make it look more integrated. This tower, along with the Almas, are the best buildings in the entire Marina JLT area.

As I said, come back when those in render form are completed ..... and of course DO not ignore the second part of the post, you know, the part about how typical residential towers looks

They are supertalls so how they are typical? It's natural we expect quality designs there. And NO quality doesn't mean each of them have to be trying to stand out more than another (which btw they do with those crazy crowns). Infinity is great mostly not because it's twisted but because of classy facade it have.

Well, It's actually the only facade in the tallest block that doesn't.

Make up your mind, which one is now, the design and crowns or the facades?

What residential towers have you seen with your own eyes (commie-block excluded)? Have you seen those in Dubai, Vancouver, Toronto, Miami, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, etc?

See them, compare them .... and then judge
