Emaar PropertiesDubai, UAE
The Burj Dubai district is the site of the world’s tallest building and billed as the “most exclusive address on earth”. This 60-story residential tower will be a part of this larger, master-planned community, combining residential apartments, offices, luxury hotels and the Dubai Mall – the largest shopping complex in the world
The primary strength of the project lies in its utilization of a three-dimensional diamond pattern for the main façade. The depth of the pattern animates the structure and brings a modern identity to the project. Although grounded in traditional Islamic geometry, the design echoes the legacy of YAMASAKI.
