Dubai really takes their designs to the extreme. I really hope these get built, it would be perfect for Dubai.

Ac towers look like a abnormal cactus.

But love the design and can see Dubai's futuristic minds.

I think you mean a saguaro, which is a type of cactus.

But, yes I do agree that there is a similarity.

The Ac Tower's architect probably drew inspiration from that cactus as the architects of Burj Dubai. They were influenced by the desert flower hymenocallis.

Dubai is officially on my must travel to locations... it's a city that looks like it's 100 years into the future. And I can only imagine in about a decade when I may the opportunity to do so how it'll look...
