I know what you mean but the shard really doesnt look like the design, whereas the grollo building and this Doha centre look exactly the same.

That building is really quite nice i like it a lot. especially how in the rendering the convention centre looks like a sheet of ice in the midst of tropicana. the videogame-esque lights on the tower though are interesting though.

It looks amazing at night imo! Those colors are amazing and this building will look so futuristic once it's finished!

Do we know that the work in the picture is not just the convention center part, but the tower? That does not look like a tower foundation (maybe in the distance, where they seem to be digging?)

BESIX Group will provide structural, architectural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing works for a convention centre and tower in Doha due for completion by March 2011, OCI said in a statement on Wednesday.

BESIX, a Belgium group in which OCI has a 50 percent stake, has a $370 million share in the Doha project which will include a hotel, offices, retail and residential areas and a convention centre in a 550 metre tower, OCI said.

Orascom's chief executive said in November he saw company revenue from construction rising 50 percent in 2009 on more infrastructure projects. (Writing by Alastair Sharp, editing by Dan Lalor)
