Ive heard architechts expressing that they believe the way of the future is less like clear defined shapes and lines, and more "organic"/closer to nature. Id say this is a more organic design than those very defined buildings of the 90's like Bank of china for example. Altough the colours are not very "organic". Altough organic doesnt have to mean that the building is green.

Id say the way of the future will be designs which have smooth curves and sort of merges with the ground instead of just going up straight. I believe a deisgn by zaha hadid for a building in Dubai (dont remember the name but its like seven floors), comes close.

yeah I thought the same thing hen I saw it.The building itself has a boring design,but the facade is quite original,and it echoes the arabian culture.

Torre Agbar with a spire... that's what I thought as well, but both Torre Agbar & The Gherkin are much better than this one.

There is a lot of difference between all the three towers.. In design, and facade. Who knows... you might get a surprise at the end

Yes, I know there is, if Agbar & the gherkin were the same I wouldn't like them both

And about Burj Qatar, as many people said, the spire doesn't really fit. Anyway... I'm looking forward to seeing how this one will turn out. I have to admit that the structure is very interesting (from what I see in the construction pics).

The facade is absolutely stunning.

I agree that this is ajust another copy of his previous work. Why doesn't he come up with one that curves a bit, and that will be a master piece !!
