this is possibly the ugliest building proposal i have ever seen, and that includes the the thing they proposed in dubai that looked like it had a massive tumour. the proportions are all wrong, the straight side doesnt fit in with the curved side, and the horns just look stupid. I hope this gets rejected, doha has great potential to become an amazing modern city, but this will ruin everything, they'll have to build 700m buildings all around it just to make sure its hidden. Please doha do not build this tripe, the oryx may be the national animal but you dont see them building kangaroo shaped buildings in australia or golden eagles in america etc. Buildings designed to look like animals do not work this is horrible.

Good concept, so so execution. It looks rather generic, except for the top part.

Still waiting for anyone with information on whether this is 600m to roof or to spire. From the first render, it appears that the roof is at 600m, but the thread title has 600m as the official height.

Also, all of the renders make it look hallow. It's kind of annoying.

Sorry for being so negative.

It reminds me of an insect more than an animal. It looks nice until you get to the spires. Oh I just noticed that it reminds me of "Plankton" from Spongebob Squarepants.
