The Emirates Towers - Photos

They must be the oddest couple on earth. Depending on the location from where you are looking at The Emirates Towers, they seem to share anything from a cold distant share to a warm union.

Despite the not-so-cost-effective idea of using a triangle as the architectural design base and it's similarities with another structure , this building never ceases to amaze me. The sense of geometry and style becomes evident as you explore each and every corner of this unique Dubai landmark. Some photos I took on such a visit can be found here.

Speaking of similarities, and if you have some time, you should explore the escalating number of designs being copied all over Dubai, it is becoming so sickening, you can't but wonder what exactly do these people have in mind, just fill the desert sand with towers, malls, restaurants / coffee shops and artifical lakes to make it real, what real??? Unfortunately, the notion to make all things happen all at once is destroying the very essence of a truly well planned and liveable city.

Speakin of similarities, there was a tad bit of discussion on that (comments section) at the link Woke gave us at the word "similarities".

BTW, some of the copies you're speakin of are straight out of the architecture books.
