The Diamond of Istanbul Empty
PostSubject: The Diamond of Istanbul   The Diamond of Istanbul EmptyTue Nov 09, 2010 12:47 am

Hattat Construction Co. have commenced structural work on the next jewel in Istanbul's emerging skyscraper crown named the Diamond of Istanbul.

Designed by Dome Architecture of Istanbul and reaching 270 metres in height, the project will consist of three towers connected by a central spine to form one structure, the three segments of the structure will be divided for different uses.

The smallest covering a total area of 16,000 metres square will contain A grade office space, the second tallest will be dedicated to residential and will cover an area of 18,000 metres square and the tallest covering an area of 20,000 square metres will house a 300 room luxury hotel. The hotel tower will have two restaurants, both offering panoramic views of the Bosphorus and the cityscape beyond.

The complex will also include a 5 floor shopping mall spanning over an area of 35,000 metres square allowing patrons and residents to not only admire an enormous jewel but perhaps purchase a few smaller ones for themselves. Also included in the scheme are cinemas, concert halls, botanical garden and a huge aquarium. Underground parking will also be included.

Located in Istanbul's growing business district the towers will also have direct access to the airport approximately 40km away as well as direct access by subway to the old town, business centre and airport. It will be one of the few hotels to have direct subway access to the airport.

The tower will be a mix of steel and concrete addressing earthquake risks and will also feature bio climactic design and a double glass façade which will provide natural light and air flow to the tower and to address green issues the tower will generate its own power with the clever use of co-generating technology.

This isn't the only project of this scale under construction in the Turkish city. The Sapphire Tower, another skyscraper named after a jewel, is also being built. These two mark a sea-change in tall buildings in Turkey being the first two truly high-tech ones that rival the very best being built in London or Frankfurt

When Tom Delonge says that his band’s latest album is “like blending Radiohead and U2 together", it’s hard to take him seriously. Maybe it’s because this is the same guy who once sang “I know a guy who has sex with his sister/He used his **** to pop her four-foot blister”. Maybe it’s because his whiney voice is more reminiscent of a male Avril Lavigne than it is of Bono or Thom Yorke. Or maybe it’s because after two mediocre efforts, it’s fairly safe to say that Angels & Airwaves (often referred to as AvA) will never be in the same league as U2 or Radiohead.

Whatever the reason, it’s still hard not to admire Delonge’s ambition. Following the implosion of blink-182, Delonge could have easily replicated his previous success by forming another pop-punk trio singing about sex and teenage rebellion. Instead, he decided to pull his head in and attempt to create what he considered to be the best band in the world. The music was as epic as it was pretentious. The lyrics were uplifting and anthemic, albeit clichéd. Everything seemed to fit the template of a stadium rock band. The only thing holding Angels & Airwaves back was Delonge’s lack of songwriting ability.

The main gripe I have with Angels & Airwaves is the constant failure of their music to reach a satisfying climax. Some of their songs have intros that last up to three minutes, only to lead to something tremendously underwhelming. It’s as though Delonge has the idea in his head, but he is unable to put it into motion in the real world.

If you’re expecting the band’s third studio effort to be an improvement on the first two albums, you are setting yourself up to be severely disappointed. To put it simply, LOVE continues from where I-Empire finished, which coincidentally is where We Don’t Need to Whisper left us. LOVE closer “Some Origins of Fire” could have easily replaced “Valkyrie Missile” as the opening track to We Don’t Need to Whisper.

The lack of evolution is not the only problem with LOVE. While AvA’s previous albums featured heavily processed sounds and effects, LOVE suffers greatly from overproduction. The prominent use of Auto-Tune on “Hallucinations” is simply irritating, and the overall preciseness of the project somewhat takes away from the supposed message of love that the album is meant to convey. At times, you can’t help but feel like you’re listening to a manufactured pop album, without the attractive catchiness.

That being said, there are some positives that can be taken away from this album. Tracks like “Hallucinations” and “Shove” are some of the most enjoyable songs this band has written, as long as you ignore the painfully generic lyrics and exasperating use of Auto-Tune. The album flows nicely, creating more of an ‘experience’ than the last two records.

In a sense, LOVE does achieve what Tom Delonge set out to do. It is engaging, stirring, and in some ways, fun. On the other hand, the lack of a climax or ‘destination’ can leave the listener feeling frustrated and unsatisfied, which is really what is keeping Angels & Airwaves from joining the likes of U2 and Muse as one the biggest bands in the world. Even though the potential to turn this into something great is still there, Delonge would probably be better off focusing his attention on another blink-182 album.
