DOHA | Oryx Tower | 600m | 1969ft | Pro

it would actually be the tallest in West Bay, 600m high!!!




Traditional muscharabir patterns give a traditional arabic night-identity to the modern building.
The world biggest LED-screen is part of the architecture.













Needless to say the design is inspired by the Oryx, national animal and symbol of Qatar:

Why can't people create thread titles in the proper format? Is it really that difficult?

Hmm... Interesting, for sure. But is the official height 600m, or is the roof height 600m?
