Woods Bagot, designers of the proposed 1km tall Nakheel Tower in Dubai are opening a US office!

Woods Bagot, a global architecture and consulting firm employing more than 1,000 professionals worldwide, announced today that it opened its first North American office to service the growing interests of the firm’s international clients.

The San Francisco office expands Woods Bagot’s network of 14 offices currently serving Australia, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The move advances the firm’s “one global studio” strategy, which uses proprietary technology to deliver its international expertise to clients around the world.

“Competing in the global economy requires a different approach, one that is agile and innovative and driven by the best talent worldwide,” said Ross Donaldson, Group Managing Director of Woods Bagot. “The new North American office adds an important link to our knowledge network, tapping into the remarkable design and technological expertise that resides here. We foresee exciting collaborations that will continue to elevate our worldwide presence as an architectural innovator and better serve our clients’ interests in the region.”

Thank the architecture gods – maybe now we’ll get something like this ridiculousness built in the US! Because size matters, my ninjas, and good design does not…

Seriously though – why doesn’t someone just build FLW’s mile-high skyscraper? That thing was nice-looking, anyways. This thing here just looks like some kind of torturous vibrator.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to take it here, but this was too amusing not to post – a co-worker of mine had this to say of the announcement:

Employment opportunity : Woods Bagot Design

We are looking for those who have high ego and pretentiousness that can only be matched by the size of the towers that we are specialized in.

Qualification : Men. Small genital, less than 1/4″ from the base to its tip (preferably uncircumcised).

Hilarious. All those interested [meeting these criteria], leave a hater-ish reply in the comments.
