Just when you think you have seen every modern architectural creation possible in the emerging UAE and China, you come across this. What brilliant, out of the box mind, thought this one up? Dazzling blue masterpiece!! I sure hope it does not tip over.

I saw it from my room and wanted to go check it out and it is so inspiring to see how a building could be in the form of a circle and still be so functional. We took a lot of pictures and nobody stopped...More

Saw it from the bus on my way to Dubai. Truly a monstrosity. Definitely eye-catching, which was probably the main (or only) reason for the building. I love contemporary architecture, but this is just a powder box on its edge.
