Eh, probably not, but architects are still planning crazy huge buildings out in the desert oasis, only now they're shedding off "the common association of distinctive with outrageous to create a more sophisticated building." Take this new 65-story tower for example. Says the architect: "We have proposed therefore something which refuses the usual fashion of twisting and torting volumes without any meaning or reason." The end of the twist? Somebody tell this guy. [WAN]
