Not daring enough to be risque but an interesting design nonetheless.

I think it's great how the twisting is integrated into the design in a way that enhances the views of each unit and gives every single unit balconies.

Anyway the design is amazing. I really hope they build this one.

Very nice. I never quite got the name until the crystalized model and the very top looks like a big diamond. Suddenly it made sense.

strange that such a conservative country possibly builds non-conservative towers (design is most likely not done in Saudi-A.)

I agree, for me this tower is one of the most awful project that I have ever seen.

This would look awful in Baltimore. I'll take short and conventional here. 10IH or Naing is plenty for my local aspirations.

It just seems like Saudi Arabian proposals are all of these pie-in-the-sky bizarro designs, rather than something that will actually get built.

But hey, they might prove me wrong. There is certainly weirder shit happening over there...

Who is the architect? And who are the consultant structural engineers?
