That is amongst others why architects have to think about how their tower fits in the city fabric during the design phase.

Fun photos.. and the buildings looks clearly misplaced, very different to the rest of the architecture. Thanks for sharing.

It doesn't seem so bad, if the intent had been for it to be an observation tower. But an out of scale office block standing alone there would have seemed more off.

I always feel like most of the towers in Dubai come from the future.
