Recently has been completed a competition for the design of the emblem-structure of Dubai Park Zaabil. American Company Transparent House presented to the court of professionals “space” project called Crescent Moon Tower.
According to the architects of the Transparent House, their conceptual “moon tower” is not only combines the symbolic and traditional form of the Muslim world with modern technology and construction methods, but also in some way reflects the unity of the main characteristics of Dubai – the historical roots of the city and its level of development today.
Korean architectural company Heerim Architects is trying to deviate from accepted standards in the construction of skyscrapers, and example of this is the project of two disc skyscrapers which are going to be built in Baku – capital of Azerbaijan. You can not call them twins, because apparently they are different, but united by their similar form, location and function: they are located on two adjacent peninsulas in the same bay of the Caspian Sea, and both will be hotels
Instead of hotel “Crescent”, on the other side of the bay, should be located hotel “Full Moon” – in the form of standing on the edge disk (more precisely – the ellipsoid) with a hole in the upper part. Hotel “Full Moon” will look very different depending on which side, and under what angle to look at it. The hotel “Full Moon” will have 1590 meters and 35 floors where will be located 382 large “lux” numbers. The total usable area – 104 182 m².
