Yeah, I think it's fugly enough to overpower any decision to build it. Although it is a pretty interesting structure.

Awesome and should be built

For all the North Americans and Europeans, the new design may be too bold for your liking. But in reality is a striking design. With a little more world knowledge, one would have recognized it as based on the Traditional Indian Temple Design that has been around from time before christian era.

Whether we like it or not world is building. Think about it when you vote your rippublican friends to power !!! All politics and no substance.

America at this rate will probably have least number of sky scrapers soon. Sorry, but we cannot even build a monument for the WTC victims. Mean while, the rich americans that you have elected are busy buying properties in Dubai, China, Korea, India etc.

Wake up ... let us learn from the world about our mistakes.

THE DESIGN IS REALLY BOLD AND SOLID. SHOULD BE BUILT !!!!! :lovethem:

Yes. A giant skyscraper shaped like my left testicle would be bold too. Being "bold" does not make it worth building. This a hideous building and a waste of money if you ask me.

Not that I believe that this building will be built, but it is not ugly. It is the renderings you have seen which are ugly.

Here is an example of a proper, beautiful rendering:

Something similar may be built sometime in the future, though its use may be different than the one originally proposed.

A lot has change since 2005. Most notably, Dubai. Such designs are no longer wide-eye fantasies. They are real possibilities. Folks.... Welcome to the 2010's!

Nice rendering, but the building is still ugly and fat.
Interesting statement. Is it a norm here at skscrapercity.com to prefer thin, glassy structures which have with straight sides and little, or no ornamentation? The "tastes" here remind me of what I hear of in the fashion modeling industry, which tends to prefer tall, slender Caucasians.

^I also think it is a matter of light. I mean, how would you illuminate the interior of such a big building? Most building codes call for a certain maximum distance to windows for offices and such. In some countries, it's part of the regulations that every office workplace has to have a view of the sky, however small. That's very hard to achieve when the distance from the core of the building to the outer wall is greater than the length of a football field. Light from the windows only illuminate the room some ten metres into the building (of course depending on ceiling height and window size).

Will the World Centre for Vedic Learning be ever built?

Here is another rendering of the building, this time showing an oblique view of the building and interior cutout:



The design basically calls for a multiple of large atrium/lobbies where you would normally find a core, so light doesn't seem to be the issue.
