IMO anything pushing architectural capability is worth an honorable mention. These towers are no exception

They could also perhaps have an elevator that is suspended from the back of the elevator, and have it kind of hang. Gravity would always keep it verticle, yet the elevator shaft could follow the angle of the building. This, if any of the buildings bend so far that you can't put in a verticle elevator as Malec explained.

Will be one of the best towers in Dubai. World class design from a world class architect.

I wonder how the base will be designed and I hope they do a good job of it to encourage people to walk around these towers. There appears to be an oppertunity for some good public space and since business bay is so dense this'll be needed I think.

Anyway, in these pics you can see that the towers are different sizes and can also see how they connect.

I was thinking the same thing myself once I saw that design.. there was no room for a core to be built straight upwards.. the building bends so much, that I dont understand how they could do that; surely there is no way that the render is 100% accurate. It kind of reminds me of the twin leaning towers in Spain....
