megatalls cup • quarter final
In celebration of our new megatalls forum, this time we're lining up all buildings over 600 meters tall, either completed or under construction. Lucky number 8 is the 599-meter-tall Ping An Finance Center in Shenzhen. You really couldn't be bothered to add one friggin meter could you!?

|Avian001||This is a perfect example of how much of a folly it is to simply "blow up" a classical style of architecture (either Eastern or Western)into a megatall. The proportions are off. The styling is off. The result is really, really bad. The Shanghai Tower is brilliant by comparison. The Abraj al Bait is just a pile of concrete fashioned into a faint echo of stunningly beautiful Islamic architecture.

|Icewave||→||No actually .. it was constructed due to the large number of people come to Makkah during Pilgrimage actually all over the year .. so they need a huge hotel .. Moreover, it's not one hotel .. it's a group of hotels|
|Icewave||→||& if we talk about it from arch. view ( not religious as you did ).. I vote for Shanghai Tower cuz of course it's an out standing in everything.. & I'm Muslim By the way|
|RaymondHood||Mecca is a grotesque joke.
