O-14 Tower Dubai
O-14 comprises 300,000 sqft of floor area. The building design is intriguing and one of the most unusual in the UAE – eschewing the glassy elevations of typical towers it uses an asymmetric matrix skin that ripples in and out in plan and features numerous circular apertures.

Burj Al Alam tower
Design: Nikken Sekkei

This tower building in Dubai features a crown that includes a sky garden, club facilities and a spa. The skyscraper design includes a full curtain wall system, with three external curtain wall ‘petals’. This Dubai skyscraper building will offer offices and serviced apartments. The tower building is designed to accentuate the view of Business Bay Creek on the South side and the Burj Dubai tower on the North. The podium base has specialty design retail spaces.

Burj Khalifa Dubai
The world’s tallest building, at 828m high, Burj Khalifa. Adrian Smith designed Burj Khalifa while at the Chicago office of SOM. Smith’s design of the form of the building is geometric in plan, starting with three branches and three pods. Setbacks occur at each program element, decreasing the tower’s mass as it rises toward the sky. At the tower’s top, the central core emerges and is sculpted to form a finishing spire.

Burj al Arab Hotel
Architects: Atkins

Burj al Arab Dubai – the world’s tallest hotel
This 321m tower has become a landmark building in Dubai. The hotel is located 300m out to sea on a man made island, and is designed in the shape of a giant sail. Part of the drama is the setting away from the crush of towers inland, with dramatic views along the beaches towards this unusually-shaped building.
