Arrow DUBAI | Signature Towers | 351 M | 79 FL | 305 M | 65 FL | 251 M | 52 FL | ON HOLD

This height is what I guessed for my 3D model but in fact it is very close according to one of the pics below.

These towers are not to be confused with the "dubai towers" which are also wiggly but a completely different project. In fact this one was released a few months ago but the thread disappeared into obscurity and now there's no chance of rescue

3 towers designed by Zaha Hadid's firm, one office (the largest), one res (the smallest) and one hotel. They share a common base which will have ground level retail, restaurants, etc. At the bottom the hotel and office towers merge to create a link to the hotel business centre with meeting rooms, office facilities and services for guests while near the top the hotel and res towers merge to share collective leisure facilities, including the indoor swimming pool and other amenities. Incorporated into this project is a pedestrian bridge allowing people to cross to the other side of the creek.


Various renders:




This was chosen from a competition with 4 entries. One of the other entries was by Reiser Umemoto. Here are the renders:




Some details of the design (the Zaha one)




Small renders showing the bridge (partially)




A model of the towers:




The plot as of Jan 2007:





More images to come later. There are loads from my 3D model but I have to go to college now

^^ In fact the 1st (or maybe 2nd) thing I said in the last post is this complex is not to be confused with the one in those two threads. These are the real dancing towers, the others are called "dubai towers", it's just that someone made an extra thread for them and got confused between the names

The dancing towers look so much more elegant than these.


I'm glad to see this project is underway. I feel as though it's the most exciting proposal in Dubai right now.

The renderings make them look extremely elegant, however I think in real life these will look kind of goofy. Kind of holding out on a final verdict until construction starts, however.

To get to the top of the bent tower you need to enter the one next door?

That's just nuts.

Basically it seems that dubai will build just about anything that pops into there imagination. Kind of like a kid with really big/expensive Lego Blocks. :lol:

What is Hadid's justification for the form of these buildings?
