I wasn't blown away by the render, when the AC and EP towers were announced.

The cityscape models though...This may be my favorite design. Ever.

And here. I love the idea of these huge open skybridges. Beeing on one of these would be cool. But design itself is so boring. Just three round towers conected on the bottom. Maybe that would be nice, but for excample towers are much too thin compared to the bottom part. Maybe if towers were closer to each other it also would be better idea. I dont now but first i saw it i find it not interesting.

look down, and you see the river. look up, and you see three ginormous towers surrounding you.

Maybe you can give a reason for that, instead of just saying something we can't judge? If so: then maybe we can have a nice discussion about it. That's what this forum is all about I think.

i wouldn't say "sucks", but it is definitely one of a kind and not my taste, at all....

Sometimes sucks is the best way to describe your feelings towards a building. It sucks is about all i can say about this too, I've been trying to find words to describe why i dislike it for ages now. Basically it doesn't strike me as something that will ever happen. I can't describe why, none of the renders or even the models look like something that would ever translate into a real building. Maybe they will maybe i'm wrong, this is dubai afterall. I would however like to see something where these buildings look like they're real. Look at the quality of renders for the london shard and you'll see what i mean. I just don't "get" this project yet, and agree with the poster who said "it sucks".

Could go through a number of revisions before being built like the Burj Dubai and the Pinnicle (etc)

Most of forumers says only something like "stunning!" on most of the projects and nobody's complaining

P.S. Personally i've given reason i dont like it, but maybe when somebody says "it suck's" its just becouse it sucks
