Cobra Tower-turtok

This huge tower is supposed to be a construction project in Kuwait. Some say it is a hoax.

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!

This marvelous looking building that exist as a futuristic design idea and is just like other equally great looking building that is out there as concept and is not to be mistaken for a real one. It's not, and 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!
