Remodelling Makkah

All I know is that I want to go for Hajj before this happens.

that's kind of insane.

I'm not loving the design, but I agree you need to go before this goes down.

I would be interested to see what the other design proposals are.

What's next? A billboard on the ka'bah?

Well I'm not really saying the design is "bad"...all I'm saying is that I would rather go before those huge things are built. (Side note: wouldn't it be very easy for people to fall off those monsters, especially considering the fact that there's like, a million people there :)

Considering the fact that the Haram needs to accommodate more people, it's an interesting design. Especially the end of the video when it shows the completely circular design. I mean, it looks slightly ugly and stiff in my opinion, but it's functional.

It all seems too modern, too unauthentic. But then again, I'm sure that's precisely what other people said when the Haram was being modernized in other ways.

In short, I just want to go for Hajj. Soon.

Sigh.

that there is a key thought.

also, there are heights currently at the Haram from which it is easy to "fall off".

re: the billboard thing, the areas surrounding the Haram are highly commercialized.

@yaser - it's so hard to tell whether you are serious or joking.
