Even if we assume that the design of the tower ugly 'should look to other positives and the first of towering height for this tower

I love this design. It's very different and the triple helix is cool.

Am I one of the only people who loves this design? It's beautiful! And even if you think it's not the prettiest in the world, you have to admit the design is very unique, sort of like the proposed Taiwan Tower.

Probably . But i like too, it's indeed a unique design. Let's see how it will turn out when completed.

Maybe I'm asking again, sorry for that.

Who will be the owner of this Tower? Is somebody from the Royal Family?

Wow, it's been over a year since I've seen anything about this one. It's definitely interesting.

I agree. How this thing can even stand with the swirly slide around it would be interesting!

I think this is a very beautiful design, but I think 2 WTC should have the honor of being the "Diamond Tower". But it's okay if they don't change the name of either building.

I'd say Hearst Tower over both of them.

Maybe we should call the Hearst Tower "Inverted 1 WTC Tower"!

Why do people think this is ugly? I'm not being sarcastic or criticizing anyone, I'm just asking for the features that make this tower ugly. For example, I really like this tower because of its swirly things (I don't know how to describe them.) It looks like a twisting tower with a unique "twist" to it. (Corny architect's joke ).

I honestly don't know why anyone would think this design is ugly, I think it's spectacular. I would say that this one and the Infinity Tower in Russia will be the two best twisting designs in the world. I saw the twisting tower in Dubai in person last fall and it was more impressive than the photos I'd seen of it before I got there because it looks so different from various vantage points. The problem with buildings in Saudi Arabia is that none of us westerners will ever be able to travel there to see them because you're not allowed to visit for tourism or sightseeing. In any case I believe this will be a world class skyscraper.
