مقر «الوطني» الجديد.. توأمة العراقة والعصرنة

«محارة اللؤلؤ» التي تمثل رمزا تاريخيا وثقافيا واقتصاديا للكويت، هـي الفكرة الأساسية التي استوحي منها تصميم بـرج المقـر الرئيسـي الجديـد لبنك الكويت الوطني، الذي من المنتظر البدء في عمليات إنشائه مع بداية العام المقبل.
وقد ترجم مفهوم محارة اللؤلؤ ـ الذي قامت بتصميمه شركة «فوستر أند بارتنر» العالمية المشهورة،*وصاحبة السجل العريض من الانجازات العالمية ـ إلى واجهة معمارية مميزة تعمل كدرع تحمي مكونات البرج من أشعة الشمس طـوال أيام السنة، وهـذا الدرع يتـكـون مـن شفـرات إنشـائية منحوتة بشكل عمودي على طول البــرج بارتفـاع 300 متـر. على الجانب الآخر للبـرج، فـإن الواجهة المقابلـة والمحمية من أشعة الشمس هـي واجهـة زجـاجـيـة بالكامل تسمح بمناظـر بـانـوراميـة وإطلالة مميزة تجاه البحر.
ان الاهتمـام البيئي والمساهمة في توفيـر بيئة عمل أفضل يمثلان المفتـاح الرئيسي لمفهوم تصميـم البرج الجديـد، وذلك استجـابـة لرؤية بنـك الكويت الوطني المستقبلية لتصميـم وبنـاء برج يدخل ضمن تصنيف المباني البيئية الخضـراء علـى مستوى العالم، ليكون أول برج صديق للبيئة في المنطقة.



This is an article from Al-Qabas daily newspaper, published in June 27th, 2011 and it included some information about this project:

- The height of the tower will be 300 m.
- The shape of the tower was inspired from the oyster.
- The construction of the tower will begin in first months of 2012.
- The designer of the tower is Foster and Partners.

I'm having a little trouble visualizing this tower because of the illusion created in the renders, but if it's what I think, it's an amazing looking supertall.
