Dubai needs to spice things up a bit with new buildings.

How about "Belly-Dancing Towers"......hot

AFAIK, the piling is supposed to commence on around August this month for the Dubai Financial Market with the rest of the area a month later.

^the middle tower is leaning on the other at the base, and the one at the top. The tower on the left doesnt tilt very far over so it doesnt need to be supported. It gives the allusion that it shouldent be standing. From most angles it look really amazing!

There will be enough strong load bearers in the bottom 1/2 of the buidings to support the upper-most levels. It would all be mathematically worked out by the structural engineers to provide more strength than what would be required, just as an assurance like with many standard buildings anyway.

A bit hard to tell from some the renders but it appears load bearers on one side of the very lower-part of the tower, shoot str8 up to the other side of the upper-most side. Unless there is some severe malpractice, the towers will not topple. A diagram of the supersturcture of the towers would explain it all.

Now for some dancin'!
