that Millenium Tower is one ugly piece a shit, just a giant cone. the Burj just looks great, very sleek, though I think something around 600-700m would look best.

Burj. Burj. Burj. It will always be Burj Dubai. I mean, I love Foster and his designs; the Millennium Tower sucked.

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 )
Dude the way you talk is sooo biased. Plus, the damn cone is not even being built as of right now. So WTF is the point of this comparison.

Fosters towers all look the same. Just really wired designs that scream FOSTER. . Same goes with Calatrava, I'm not a fan of either of these architects.

Now Cesar Pelli is someone I like. Great designs, awesome variety.
