Yes you're right. That proposal looks identical to Burj Dubai. (Sarcasm)

There are two other designs that have to be taken into consideration too, not just the SOM design. At this point, the winning design hasn't been chosen yet. Creating a thread for the SOM one would be pointless until we know it's the chosen design and approved.

Errmmm in fact SOM's design has 4 sides that twists, not curves, i find it quite evident. By far SOM's the best

SOM's is truly fantastic. The bottom section is a bit like The Spire for Chicago IMO.

Pelli's is well, like Pelli and Roger's one is like a supertall Pompidou Center lol

The brillaince of the SOM design is that it appears to be twisting when it's not. It's the most dynamic and beautiful tower I've seen in ages and hope to god it gets built.

This would be an awesome opportunity for San Francisco to further modernize it's skyline.

Well, out of the three... SOM 1000%!
Elegant, tall, insanely elaborated imposing good-looking base/entrance... It's all there. This one might just become my favourite US building...

By the way, what the f*!k was Rogers smoking?! His granny's panties for sure.

Sorry but that thing above is hideous.

I agree. This tower is perfect fit for third world countries. San Fransisco deserves SOM design tower.

im sorry but what happend to variety.... shanghai centre, seoul super tower, jingling tower, magnolia plaza... and this... they all have very very similar designs... i like the rogers design because its different. not just another SOM proposal....

EDIT oh and add cathedral of christ the light to that list...

im not saying the SOM design is ugly. far from it, but i don't think SOM deserve the contract as they havent done anything new and original. it wont stand out as my as the rogers design.... and as for being to industrial.... people said that about the John Hancock centre... oh wait thats a SOM... lol
