Business Bay's Dancing Towers unveiled in New York

The design of Business Bay, Dancing Towers, was revealed at New York's prestigious Guggenheim Museum this week, as part of a retrospective exhibition on UK-based architect, Zaha Hadid.

The Iraqi-born architect was recently declared the winner of an international competition to design three iconic towers at Business Bay, the region's business capital.

Hashim Al Dabal, CEO of Dubai Properties said: 'Zaha Hadid's design for the Dancing Towers confirms Business Bay's role as a project that reflects Dubai's rapidly changing future.'

'The towers incorporate avant-garde definitions of functionality and form that will not only create a distinctive landmark at Business Bay, but also symbolise a new phase in Dubai's architectural standards.' The bold design concept of Dancing Towers features a 'choreographed' fluidity that combines the three towers in one overall gesture.

Connecting the commercial, residential and hospitality sections of Business Bay, the three towers will share a common base, or podium, that will feature retail, restaurants and related amenities.

The three towers will be conjoined two by two, with the offices and hotel at the base and the hotel and residences at the top.

On Level 7, the floor spaces of the hotel and the office towers will merge to create a link to the hotel business centre with meeting rooms, office facilities and services for guests.

The residential tower merges into the hotel on level 38, for residents to share collective leisure facilities, including the indoor swimming pool and other amenities.

On level 65 of the hotel, the three towers meet again to share a panoramic restaurant offering spectacular views of Dubai Creek, Business Bay, Burj Dubai Downtown, and the Arabian Gulf beyond.

'The advantage of conjoining the three towers in one design is to allow people to live a full day cycle between the offices, residences and the hotel,' said Al Dabal.

Business Bay is Dubai Properties' 80 million square feet master development, located along the extension of the Dubai Creek. It aims to provide world-class environment and infrastructure for global businesses, as well as a self-sustaining lifestyle for residents.

Zaha Hadid was the first woman to receive the distinguished Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2004. Once considered impractical, her architectural concepts are now seen in landmark projects across Europe, North America and Asia.
