It would be impossible to build the X-Seed especially in an earthquake prone country like Japan. But again, the country has the ability to make it eq proof.

When talking about proposals do we mean something that is actually designed in order to get built or not?

On Emporis I Found an 800m High Tower which is Proposed in Seoul. the name is Lotte World II Hotel.
here The Text to the Building from first February 2005:

Seoul: A local newspaper broke the story on Feb. 1 that Lotte Group, whose efforts to build a 112-story building in Jamsil area of Seoul have met with several challenges, is now proposing a 200-story building standing at 800m at the same site. The original proposal was repeatedly vetoed by the air force that so far has been insisting on the 203m height limit in the area. Seoul city government is now supporting the proposal for a much-needed landmark in the city. If approved, the construction is scheduled to begin early next year and due to completion in 2009.

Anything in the planning stages(may be approved) that may be built in the near future(construction to start within a couple of years).

The Mubarak Al Kabir Tower has been proposed for Kuwait and not Dubai.

When I was in Architectural School years back. Chicago was going to build a 2,500 Foot World Trade Center Tower. That was a serious Tower that many people thought would be built. :cheers:

If they had to build just one major tower on the WTC, it should have been the NYSE Tower.

that was never a serious proposal. just a pipe dream
It would be awesome if someone realized FLW's idea and built it in the future though. There's still some great spaces where the Illinois could be built.

I agree. The design looks great, the setbacks work very well. I love how it gradually becomes needle sharp. And the height... :eek:
