I hope they haven't cancelled their proposal, which is for Istanbul, to build this one

Nope, that's an opera house/arts centre. I think I've made the other towers too tall in general though.

There'll be a metro line running somewhere here. It'll probably go around the development, if I were them I'd make it go right through with a station on the island with all the towers.

Now this is thinking outside the "box"

Going where no building has gone before... Changing the way people typically think tall buildings must look like, and even whole skylines.

It sorta looks like flames rising out of the ground from afar.

yea right like curling turds twisting in the sandy air. Come on this is just another dumb building crying out to be noticed AGAIN. Oh look i can twist the form of a building...so is this another headquarters building? for another international company? another one! So what are the green credentials of this building? I doubt this subject will be discussed as all you guys want to do is woooooo and WhOAaaa at buildings without questioning the need or the reason for these buildings in the first place.

Talking of turds, It's your "opinion" but still is a shitty one.

I don't see how this looks like a turd, and of course it's crying out to be noticed, it's the centrepiece of this development.
What's going to be in this building? They'll sell them off as apartments, offices and a hotel will certainly be there aswell.
BTW I think the whole form follows function rule is a load of crap. All it does is give us a load of boxes.
