Re: Capital Gate in Abu Dhabi

Good point. The capital gate is really a wonderful piece of architecture, fluid and organic. I wish only that more buildings like these could be made. There is too much squares and rectangles everywhere.

However, it would be very hard to agree on which standards to use if we want to name the "most inclined building in the world". Yes, the olympic tower of Montreal may not be inclined from it's foundations, like the capital gate, but it has a much sharper incline overall...

If we think about it, the most inclined building would still be the tower of Pisa, because every single thing in it is tilted (walls, floors, ceilings) from the foundation to the top, while certainly the floors are level in the capital gate and olympic tower...
