just because we can make these extreme building designs does not mean we should.

No, actually the title says 57-94. The image that The King posted says 54-97.

Still, make a design that actually looks good.

Obviously to some people, the only design that "actually looks good" is a box.

that is not what i meant at all. im just saying as far as the architecture in Dubai has been, this one disappoints me. Its like the architect looked at his kids drawings one night while he was drunk and thought it was a good idea.

I love Burj Dubai, CS, Index, etc....

This looks like a crappy computer generated building you would see in a future city on Star Trek.

Actually I can't wait to see some interior renderings of this. I'm really curious to see how they are going to relate to the facade. The facade seems rather cold (which I prefer in buildings) but the concept is so warm and inviting. It really makes me wonder if the interiors are going to be...examples

A. possibly polished concrete with stark white walls, maybe a little stainless steel accent walls (which I think would be drop dead gorgeous even though it doesn't relate to the concept but would match the building facade)

B. Neutral colors to represent the concept. Very warm, rich browns and brown marble flooring in lobbies, and dark wood accents (a more inviting, romantic approach that fits the concept but not necessarily the facade. Spaces that when fire is used, the fire is the centerpiece.)

They will look like flames from earth if lit in red and yellow , maybe the designer wants these towers to represent Dubai as land of oil

I actually don't like these towers either. They look cool at the start but after a while the novelty wears off and you get sick of them. They can remind you of flames but they also remind me of a giant sea monster with the tentacles coming out of the ground.
I find the Zaha towers to be much better, I didn't like them at first but now I love them.
