I guess that twisting prisms are the flavor of the month in supertall architecture, given the number of people in this thread who have likened this to the Turning Torso as if they were the first to think of the comparison.

Still, I rather like the cladding here, and would certainly love to experience the sun playing off it.

the building looks very much like the turning torso for me.

Thank Imre for updates of the core however in the last pic we see columns rise the ground level. Is there any pics from the high view to see the underground floors progress ?

Great overhead picture. I hope we'll have more of those in the future. It's nice to see progress on the basement levels as well. I hope we'll see some steel rising around the core in the coming months too.

The core and basement do seem to be rising very quickly. Of course it probably wouldn't seem so fast if we were getting photo updates as frequently as we do for Burj Dubai.

I wonder if they will eventually restore the bank back to the way it was before the breach occurred? Right now it gives them more room for staging, so they might not restore it until the building is nearly complete, if they do at all.

I guess they will do that after finishing the building or at least in the very end. Always welcome, some extra space. Does anyone know what kind of construction they will use at this tower, or is everything cast in place like every other project in Dubai? I hope something special is used for a challenging project like this with every floor a different floorplan.. Any thoughts?

im getting a little bored of twisting towers. There are just too many of them being build. I think its the first one in Dubai though, so that will look nice.

I count 22 twisting designs in this thread. I assume that there are more than 30 twisting towers.

But how many are actually built or UC? Probably a quarter of that number, at the most.
