I was about to say it looks like the animal on the tail of Qatar Airways planes. Nice looking building.

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

Sorry for being so negative.
You were probably hating it so much that you never noticed the 600m level marked on the first render. Looks like roof height to me.

With the antlers, I'd guess 750m or so.

As for the design, I love it. I used the Oryx antler shape for braces once on a pergola I built. We have a herd at the wildlife park in Glenrose [Fossil Rim]., They are very beautiful animals.

I guess it depends on how high the Burj goes huh? If it stops at 700m, we might have a competition. Course I doubt that's gonna happen....

damn this tower is so impressive!
actually i wouldn't say that it looks aesthetical, the design is too strange to be really beautiful, but this makes the project even more impressive and breathtaking.
well done!

The design is unique. It reminds me of an insect with two long antennae.

If the renderings are correct, it could really rival Burj Dubai.

If you make a rough measurement with a ruler or the measure tool of Photoshop, you will see that the "spires" have about 40 percent of the height of the rest of the building. That means about 840 metres total height. That might be taller than Burj Dubai, at least for people who count in spires (I don´t).

Is it just me or in that render is the 600m mark only two thirds of the way up the building? If so that would make the top of the 'horns' around about 900m?

I have a feeling that the 600m marker is just incorrectly placed, and that 600m will be the top of the "horns", simply because it doesn't look nearly that high.
