Updated with new renders.

Okay, now I think this building is just ugly. What an awful looking thing to build right on Martyrs Square on such prime property! Not to mention, it will totally dwarf and block views of the Virgin Megastore.


It doesnt fit with anything, and its exterior looks like.... I have no idea.


Oh well, we will just have to wait and see.

We never know, I just don't want it to ruin the Mosque's impressive scale. If it's just one big rectangular box beside a piece of art, I will be just decieved!

i actually really like it...besides, the mosque's scale is actually too big for martyrs' square and it dwarfs everything...so it needs something to balance it out

I'm not happy with this design or the scale... maybe if it was 3 stories shorter.. same height as the Virgin Megasstore.

I wish it was more futuristic, like the new Solidere Rotana hotel... I guess we'll see how it turns out.

It appears the crane has been placed at the site, which could mean the foundation is complete?

If there were another building going up, as originally intended, it would make sense (no one would really see it as it would be a narrow passage).

Easiest, though perhaps not best, thing would be simply to extend the screen around the side.

But if the open area will forever remain open and dedicated as R Hariri's resting place, then you'd wish the architects would consider a redesign to take the fact into account. The view from outside is important - it frames an important site. And from inside, those rooms on the side now open up to space, rather than what would have been the close-up facade of another building)....
