Sure, but for the right feeling how huge towers are you should stand right next to it.

I was going to chime in too and say that the base cladding looks very nice. I think especially in the US, we're just not used to seeing bright golden / oranges used but in this case it does give it a nice tropical feel (fitting in Dubai). The brown stone looks classy...wish they used more of it.

Are you serious? I was about to say exactly the opposite, that cladding is really awful, and the combination with the colour of the glass (and the shape and excessive ornamentation) just hurts my eyes.

Different cultures have different traditions, even when it comes to design of buildings. Who are you to claim who rules and who sucks?

Can I say the Spanish language is awful?

Think about it

Somebody please tell me that they will remove that ugly blue cardboard (or whatever that is) on the top of the building just below the crown.

Looks like the large sphere was really built with the lights that the mini model had. I imagine they will be sparkeling.

There also are LED flood lights on those polls, the bottom of the top spire section, and linear LED light along the crown. Love it!!





How tall is that sphere? 10-12 meters?
