Spain should be more mature architecturally. Not a good project I am afraid.
Spain is already pretty mature architecturally. You cand find crap projects in every city in the world

If only there were more Benidorms on this world, we could enjoy hundreds of kilometres of untouched coastlines.

In comparison, Benidorm's towers occupy a tiny part of the coast, and us you see on this picture, the towers end suddenly, and the rest is preserved as it was decades ago. It is very simple, more people in less space consume less resources, and destroy less land.

It matters because it is not clear wether you think the tower destroys the landscape or if the high-rise architecture of the city does.

Read my post again.
Same can be said about mine. I wrote "they proceed", which means they go on to destroy the landscape - it's already pretty bad and getting worse, with every highrise which densifies the area. I'd never consider to travel there, the whole city looks pretty awful to me.
Single houses/mansions or even rowhouses don't destroy the landscape as those highrises do. I prefer to have several coastlines lined with mansions than to have some of them with ridiculous highrises. That's it.
I hope you may understand my point now, nothing worth to discuss about anymore.

Who designed this eyesore by the by?

Okay, so what you don't like is a place full of towers. That's what I wanted to know. I hope you also understand my point of liking places full of towers and discussing about them on Skyscrapercity.

Houses or mansions destroy the landscape the same high-rise towers do. They both change the landscape, and make it artificial. Actually any human activity changes the landscape. If I'd want to enjoy nature I would go to a place without any building, high or low. High-rise construction limits the destruction and helps preserving more land untouched, in this case, more coastline. For example, we urbanise 2% of the coastline to maintain the remaining 98% unurbanised.

It is just a matter of having some environmental awareness.

The 'architect' of this building should hang his head in shame, then retire immediatley after admitting he faked his diploma. I squeeze better designs out of my arse!

This tower might not get built at all, the Spanish construction crisis has afected this project to. Acording to neighbours there has not been any activity on the site since November.

Well, since it's not going to rise in my city and I don't really give a damn, I can say: It's funky! And the whole city is... quite unordinary.
