burj dubai vs Fosters Millenium Tower

burj dubai vs Fosters Millenium Tower

Both are around 800m.

One was a vision during the 90`s the other is getting built.

Fosters tower is definatley one of the most sophisticated designs for an 800 m tower, innovative and interesting looking.

It represents the high-tech architecture, that stands in the tradition of john hankock and others, that express the structural system, reduce the shape to whats rationally the best way

Burj dubai is a pretty much standard conrete thing, just a bit taller.

So, what you guys think? Would dubai have been better of, if they had built fosters tower?

( Or should they built it additionally )

I prefer the first tower, but the second with the lights seems amazing.

Oh man, I would go for The Millennium Tower! It's also more innovative since it's gonna be built on water

This is a close one IMO.I really love both scrapers however because Burj Dubai is under contruction whilst the other is still a proposal I'll go with the first tower.

i've read that millenium tower was intended to be a fully functional 'vertical city' designed to be self sufficient, with its own power supply and recycling unit

Well, the burj looks better I think, but the millenium tower's concept is what's so great about it, plus I was facinated by it when I was a kid since I saw it in books, etc so I'll vote for it.

I found the design of Millenium Tower impractical to be build, for aerodynamic reasons. There would be a wind vortex gallore around that tower, swinging it around as a stick.

Of course if it had to be build, they would have worked that out, but not without substantial structural and design modifications of the original design.
