What I like about this project is not so much the building but the urban surrounding which seems very well planed with all those green areas as well as the visual perspective from and toward the tower.

The name is appropriate. There was a prior agreement between Nazarbayev and the emir of Abu Dhabi to build this tower. Hence the name.

Noo, why did they change the design?

Foster's concept was so much more inspiring and innovative.

Nope, Foster's concept looks like a '60s brutalist concrete crap. This one is post-modernist as the towers nowdays should be.

You've got to be kidding. Brutalism? Concrete? Where?

The new design ain't much of a different deal, except it's way more bland, exchangeable, faceless and boring.

They better build below the ground to avoid such ugly buildings around.

Here I have to agree. Usually I like Foster designs ,but this one is a real disappointment.

I suppose the emir is funding the project but is he financing it completely or just partially. Anyway, I don't like the idea of naming a landmark building according to the major financial contributor. It sends the message that money is more important than national sentiment. In Belgrade, the oldest hotel and also one of the landmark buildings is named after Moscow but not because some Russian financed it but because of good historical relations.

I would say more elegant. What do you mean by boring? I hope that by "exiting" you don't mean Dubai/Las Vegas/Saudi Arabia style buildings.
