I prefer the Norr International and Civic Art proposals. The Atkins proposal sucks.

Dubai is planning its second low carbon-emission development project which, like the first, will be located at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

Canada's Busby, Perkins & Will won the contract to design the project in December. The design features two towers, with a uniquely-designed wind turbine placed between them.


RWDI, the Canadian-based wind engineering consultants, which carried out work for the Burj Dubai, were also involved in the design.

The towers will be the second office-block development in Dubai that incorporates wind turbines into the structure following the Lighthouse Tower, designed by the UK's Atkins, also being built in DIFC.

The 400-metre office tower aims to reduce energy consumption compared to a conventional design by up to 65 per cent and water consumption by up to 40 per cent. This will be achieved using solar technology including photovoltaic awnings, a series of low energy and low water use solutions, as well as recycling systems for energy and water reuse. As well as the wind turbines, the building will supplement its power supply using 4,000 solar panels incorporated into the structure (MEED 27:4:07).

So if the tower they talk about is this one (and it looks like it is from the description) then we know which one it'll be.
BTW, the 400m tower they talk about is the Atkins one, not this one.

Its horrible if they build that atkins one Maybe if they remove the red dots which are only annoying, a real eyesore. Also id prefer it to be built over the road from the Emirates towers and also have a large green area/park around them like they do.

That Atkins one is terrible its seems they picked up the idea from a bad Sci-Fi movie, its completely devoid of taste. I'm not totally adverse to a Sci-Fi look as long as its tasteful like this design:

Well, it is futuristic, but IMO not so tasteful.

This one looks tasteful to me:

Yeah its pretty hard to satisfy most people because of the inspiration behind the design but as always taste is subjective, although you'd be really hard pressed to see anyone impressed with the Atkins design :p

I would prefer this one too, but i think the spire is a bit too long in respect to the rest of the tower.

I disagree, if the spire was any shorter it would look out of proportion to the rest of the tower.
