Interesting. . .

I actually like the design a lot. It's simple and classy. Good for Abu Dhabi, but it wouldn't look out of place in Dubai either.

After a closer look, it actually looks a lot like the Index IMO.

Wow. that thing is gorgeous! I love it! It's perfectly proportioned and perfectly simple. :cheers: Go Abu Dhabi! :D

Looks like a mix of the Index and Le Grande Arche, but I like it. I also think it fits better in Abu Dhabi then in Dubai...:D

That's true.
And also Torre Repsol in Madrid
May be a design by Foster, like those two...

Great building, amazing when compared to the existing old ADNOC building to the right.

This is going to look awesome in it's simplicity when finished. I really like the design, it really conveys power.

Surrealplaces Dec 13, 2012 6:38 PM

I like it. It's simplistic, which is a nice change from some of the buildings we've seen go up in UAE.

A different, more dignified/restrained supertall building in the Middle East.

Roadcruiser1 Oct 30, 2014 1:17 AM

This building looks like something straight out of 1970. I love it. It is just missing black glass.....
