While nothing ilegal, it does show that the Architects are cheap bastards.

If you make a great recipe and won't cook the meal it is against some moral values if I cook it instead? I don't think so. If someone makes a great design and it is refused, why it should be left on the paper forever? That would be a shame... Great buildings deserve to be build, if not by the original architects, then by some other...

I don't see this as some ,,stealing", don't blame the architects of ,,zero imagination" or whatever... They just took a good recipe someone else wrote, spice it a little (twins) and then cook it in Dubai... Good for me...

I myself have used the line about "find a use to something that someone else rejected, and I have no problem with the design being used at all, however that doesn't make ethically correct for the "architects" to pass it as theirs.

Something like stealing someone's else's pictures (think those of Imre) and taking credit for them.
