So underrated. Dubai has buildings 1000 times worse. Although it could have looked better if there was no connection at the top (identical twin towers).

Agree it would look much better as twin towers. It's that 1950's "vision of the future" top thing that I find so damn hideous.

here's a video i took last august,enjoy!

i thik also that it's not that bad. it has a normal strict shape like classic buildings, f.e. seagram building, also just a box. the only argueable aspect is the cladding colour.Not really fitting imo.

Why do people hate this building so much? Just because of the side walls?

They hate anything that isn't a shiny blue glass box, apparently.

Because it's extremely tacky! That shape and color... Looks like a villain's head quarter from a 70ies James Bond flick.

It looks like something out of War of the Worlds. I like it though, it makes me laugh.
