These are from May of this year. Altin did say it was a 3 lobed design that was chosen ...

Could it be the KT design ?

Draw your own conclusion ...

Picasa - Hisham Fouad









I could certainly live with this if it turns out to be the KT design.
Discussion ... thoughts ...?


Ray.
the date says May 2010 ,,, i wonder how it looks like now

After seing that desing I have to say one thing... Db tower is way more interesting project It's not that i don't like style or cladding. It's just about overall idea. Because as it seems this is just another burj _Khalifa_like thing. Once again three wings, and jumping forms for several years in the same configuration, quite boring. While db tower shows something really new and futuristic and I'm sure construction will be way more interesting even though it will be lower tower.

Still I'm very excating about this one, mainly because of its size, just to bad its something we have allready seen, just in a bit bigger scale.

India Tower (db tower) isn't three_wings_thing at all. It has triangural footprint plus these extra styructures between sections, and the fact that it will have several separated cores. All these makes it quite different from what we've seen allready.
