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.
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.
