Crescent Moon Tower - A marvel of DubaiBy Niveditha Ravikumar
Design Reviews Tweet 0 Comment(s)
Dubai is the most populous city in the world and has been adding superlatives to its name in terms of tourism and trade. This is because of the transformation of the desert city of Dubai into a global city with the tallest building in the world. Being one of the most important traders of petroleum and oil products, the city of Dubai, with a futuristic vision, realized the gradual shortage of resources in the following years. Hence, the modern city of Dubai, with a focus towards tourism and development now constitutes a number of skyscrapers, making it an amalgamation of architectural marvels. Because of the ignorance towards contexts of geography and climate, the design of the skyscrapers allow the usage of artificial systems only, hence making it one of the most expensive cities on earth.
And not to forget, Dubai is one of the most actively committed places investing in technology and Architecture.
Apart from hosting world's tallest skyscraper (Burj Khalifa), world's first circular skyscraper, world's biggest mall, etc, a new proposal has been submitted to the 11th edition of Thyssen Krupp elevator Architecture award by a California based firm – Transparence House.
The proposal is the Crescent Moon Tower, an architectural design project considered to be a multifunctional, remarkable and a futuristic one.
The tower takes the shape of a crescent moon with the following symbolic objectives:
- Underlining or highlighting Dubai's association with the Islamic world
- Demonstrating the level of technological and economic development reached by the Arab emirate.
It has been proposed in a 220 hectare site in Za'abeel Park, a park northeast of Dubai World Trade Centre, not far from the desert. The region has been cleaned up and prepared for the construction of offices, hotels, homes and services for 50,000 Baku residents and 48,000 workers. It involves cutting-edge challenges in construction and consists of 33 storeys, a library, restaurant, cafes, open-air observation platform.
This moon shaped tower cutting the city's skyline has aroused immense expectations from around the world. This shall enhance the tourism, thereby attracting scientific, recreational and cultural activities.
