The Kuwait Cobra Tower or Burj Cobra is a concept generated by a CGI firm(CDI Gulf International). The tower is supposed to rotate to give a cool spiral effect. There are questions like ”How will the elevator work?” so and so forth. Expert says they will use air pressured tubes instead. That’s what new-age design is suppose to do, blend creativity with utility.
The news that this was an actual project to be started in 2008 near gulf street remains dormant, without concrete follow ups!
Some sites even post this shot while claiming the building exists and is used by the company Infosys. It does not, and it is actually not much more than a computer generated concept at the moment, without any plans to actually go for a detailed design, let alone construction.
But when completed, Cobra tower would make a fascinating building!
