You know what would be even more awesome on this building? If they just painted clock faces & hands on the sides, without any working clock. It'd be appropriate somehow

In the beginning I had some hope that the building wouldn't turn out as bad as the renders...well, I guess I was wrong.

What a horrible piece of architecture.

Man even I have to say I don't really like how this project looks and I love skyscrapers period . I'm surprised since checking in though that the so-called Maze Tower did in fact, complete. Trippy!

Yeah, the pattern of the Al Rostamani Maze Tower is pretty neat, though I don't care for the cladding. Regarding this building, I like it, thopugh I think it would look alot better with a clock.

it actually looks worse than the rendering. Anyone knows what goes on in the top part? There seems to be no windows behind the 'clock'

If this was built in the 1930's and in midtown Manhatten, I bet you wouldn't be saying that. Your problem is that it's an outdated style that's all, or it looks out of place among it's more modern looking neighbours. The design isn't actually so different from a number of classic new york skyscrapers. Your judgment isn't objective but is a product of your time and place.

A clock would look best. What else would look better?

The problem with this tower is it's surroundings. It just doesn't fit in.
