Nope, what's the website? Looks like just a random proposal though.

I still have to update this thread though since it's over a month out of date I think. I'll do it tonight

The background and the overall shape suggest this is one of the concept designs for Dubai CHamber of Commerce Building No. 2.

They have choosen a design which actually have alot of similarities with this, but the two separate towers are integrated into one. That proposal it is on malec's list.

To be honest the only thing i like was the cultural village from all these projects. Its the first noteworthy thing for me in Dubai. It looks awesome. The rest are all looks and fancy towers.

G-d sometimes I wonder if they will be able to sell all these apartments and villas. I mean there is a limited amount of millioners and billioners in the world and i am not sure whether they would one to buy more than two estates in a city of one million.

Its starting to seem like the capital overinvestment that China is so hard trying to control before it becomes a real estate bubble. I worry that Dubai is going to experience a real estate bubble if they don't control the building going.

A new tower:

The Prism, 36F






Also some very big news. It seems business bay's BIG ONE will be announced next week. Looks promising



UK-based architects win ‘Business Bay’ Tower design competition
3-Jun-2006

Business Bay

Dubai Properties (DP), a member of Dubai Holding, has declared UK-based firm, Zaha Hadid Architects, as the winners of a competition to design three iconic towers at Business Bay , one of the region’s most ambitious real estate project to date.

Hashim Al Dabal, CEO of Dubai Properties said: “This is the first international design competition initiated by Dubai Properties. The aim of the competition is to bring the best practices and innovations from around the world to Dubai , reinforcing the company’s mission to provide excellence in real estate solutions.”

Dubai Properties had earlier invited leading international architects to present proposals that reflected the unique vision of Business Bay as the region’s business capital. Pitches were submitted to an internal review committee by Morphosis Architects, Los Angeles ; Zaha Hadid Architects, London ; RUR Architecture, New York ; and Office of Metropolitan Architects, Rotterdam .

Zaha Hadid’s prize-winning entry was selected by an elite jury who hailed her ingenious design as a unique blend of form and function. When executed, Hadid’s creation will represent an inimitable interpretation of architectural excellence in Dubai that no other city has dared to dream. Al Dabal said: “The response to the competition was overwhelming. While all the entries conveyed our vision for Business Bay , it was Zaha Hadid’s pitch that captured the essence and global relevance of Business Bay .”

Zaha Hadid’s design proposal is indicative of the architect’s distinctive style with the towers reflecting a dynamic fusion of volume and space. A leading contemporary woman architect, Baghdad born Zaha Hadid is known for her intense and avant-garde designs. Using the waterfront to optimal advantage, her design for the intertwined towers defies convention, and surprises with its fluid composition.

A city within a city, Business Bay is a freehold commercial, residential and business cluster. It aims to provide world-class environment and infrastructure for businesses from around the world to set up their local, regional and international headquarters. The design of the towers will be unveiled to an international audience in New York next week.
