Dancing Towers by Zaha Hadid

Zaha Hadid’s design for the Dancing Towers confirms the role of Business Bay Development at the very forefront of Dubai’s rapidly changing future. The three towers rise above the creek and project themselves as an icon for the surrounding developments and for the gulf region.

The tower’s striking design creates a new presence that punctures the skyline with a powerful recognizable silhouette. The fluid character of the towers is generated through an intrinsically dynamic composition of volumes.

The towers are inter-twinned to share programmatic elements and rotate to maximize the views from the site towards the creek and neighbouring developments.

The design quality of the towers to act as a symbol and icon extends beyond their scale and location. These qualities are derived from the boldness of the architectural concept, from the choreographed’ movement that combines the three towers in one overall gesture and weaves’ with a series of public spaces through the podium, the bridges and the landscape beyond.

      Great stuff kid! Good on you for having a passion for architecture, Zaha Hadid is a fine designer, you should also look elsewhere, especially older Architects from history such as The Three Greats: Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Mies Van der rohe.

      That’ll be a great place for you to start looking at architecture before moving in to the complex designs of Hadids work.

      All the best with your future.

      Jade.

  • Audiobooks that from Audible. com are with. aa file file format
    with DRM (Digital Proper rights Management) encryption. Hearable Audio(.

    aa (together along with DRM protection), that means it is
    impossible for people to enjoy their Audiobook files on their mp3 players even you’ve paid for that.

    When you want being AA files with any player you were given (reasonable thought),
    we have a need to get rid of DRM from Audible. AA format and
    convert them to. MP3 file format. Though Audible. com recommends to use Apple iTunes to be able to burn the mp3 audio books as audio CDs
    (you will be unhappy with the particular. aa sound quality).
    Should you not like the iTunes method, here is better way to convert.
