Oh wow this is incredible architecture. I think it's safe to say that the future is here?

OK, maybe not a random architect but a well established architect.
At the moment I don't see what makes this project any more real than say, Foster's vision for an 800m tower (millenium tower)

I'm not asking you to publish them.
The only reason I'm sceptical is because at the start of the first post it says "concept".

Isn't it only a "concept" and could be built anywhere, or you have information about this project going to be built in Doha? I also do recall reading on other site that it was proposed for Doha as well, just wondering.

Beautiful

This building is truly a work of art. Simply stunning. However that unoccupiable spire must be very costly. I hope it is made, even if in a smaller version.

This must be a communication tower, otherwise it would be an impractical structure. Very unique concept though.

On a certain level... this is a complete wank for a bank.

But damn... what a gorgeous wank it is. J'aime.

I'm sorry, but unless this is an observation tower, I don't want to see that thing built. It is impossible to construct and it will have the fewest number of floors for any supertall ever built (20).

I wanted an explanation for your bumpification but it appears to be a deviation cause it's about observation. Oh well, it's still a cool building nonetheless even tough it lacks economical ability.
