lose the 'face' of the oryx (on the near side of the building in the water-level render)... makes the building look like a cartoon. and while you're at it, lose the two legs... again, cartoonish.

Dohas Horny 600m Tall TV Tower

Published on 2008-01-15 by Skyscrapernews.com

National pride in something is a wonderful thing. So proud is Qatar of their national animal, the Oryx, that proposals have been put forward to build a super-tall skyscraper to honour it.

Named non-surprisingly the Oryx Tower, it will stand an impressive 600 metres if it gets built and comes from the drawing board of Austrian architect Gerfried Ramsauer.

Triangular in shape the tower thins out as it reaches its peak and will sport some unusual and innovative features and be instantly recognisable by its homage to the Oryx - its amazing antler spires which instead of pointing upwards curve over slightly.

The tower will have a glass façade but this is not bog standard, double skinned, two a penny glass façade but rather this will, if it gets built, be the worlds biggest LED screen.

The tower incorporates the Media RETRO façade and RETROluxtherm blinds into its design which will allow images to be projected onto the outside of the façade making this not only a fully functioning skyscraper but also a massive communal television. How cool would the film The Towering Inferno look at that size?

The clever part of this innovation is that the goings on inside the tower will not interfere with what's being projected outside and the projections will not obscure views to the outside world, pleasing both T.V enthusiasts and those within the tower who appreciate the panoramic view that's on offer.

This will allow the tower to transform its look with patterning as well as T.V pictures or have the colours fade through the spectrum creating a giant lightshow on the Doha skyline.

Traditional Muscharabir patterns down the sides of the building will give a traditional Arabic look at night proving that the past and the present can be melded together successfully whilst the general structure is expressed by crossbracing that zig-zags diagonally up the sides.

It's suspected the tower will be used largely for office space although nothing official has been released as to its possible function as the project is still in the design stages.

Such an interesting and unique design will have many fingers crossed or in the case of the square eyes amongst us, the TV remote finger poised in anticipation for approval to be given to this tower and work to begin on site.

how long would it take before this proposal gets the nod and be under construction if this is a pure tv tower much like the guanzhou tv sightseeing then wow this would be the best design especially with the rendering of the LCD screen looks great

the lcd screen will be awesome because it'll change the mood and the design of the skyline.

Love this design!!! I know its very odd looking skyscraper. Come on guys it is something what we need to see to get built on this planet. Many of us are tired of boxy, twist, curved, and pyramid towers. This is something new!
