Not enough Islamic influence for ya? Understandably, I guess.
Most Americans came from more purely Christian Europe.
Not that it really matters. Architecture, like all cultural expressions, is organised theft of ideas anyway.
Nice sense of humor.
We have a modern bridge over the River Clyde in the centre of Glasgow. I doubt if many known it's real name as everyone just calls it "the squinty bridge" as it crosses the river at an angle.
This is somewhat related to the toic: http://nautil.us/blog/can-you-identify-these-cities-from-their-light-signatures
Wonder if the view from space will ever influence building or city design?
For those who rather like their buildings to stand tall, Saudi Kingdom Tower in Jeddah is under construction to reach up 1 km (originally 1 mile, but that is what happens when switching to metric).
Anyway it is one of the likely shapes if building very tall is your overarching goal. It has some superficial similarities to Burj Khalifa as well, except being a couple hundred meters taller.
