MUMBAI | Imperial Tower | 400m | 1312ft | 116 fl | Pro

Imperial Tower is a 116-story residential building next to two existing towers in Mumbai, India. At 400 meters, it will be one of the Mumbai's tallest building, and will serve as a
prototype for future tall towers in this densely developed but currently low-rise city. The tower's form is distinguished by sensuous curves, lush skygardens and a high-
performance, highly reflective exterior wall. The aerodynamic shape of the tower is designed to confuse the wind, minimizing negative effects of wind action on the building;
the skygardens also help break up wind vortexes around the building. The terraces also function as beautiful amenities for building occupants, providing access to light
and views and a strong connection with the natural world in a manner atypical for Mumbai. The exterior wall provides a strong visual contrast with the heavy masonry cladding
of most surrounding buildings; the wall system is also highly sustainable, blocking solar heat gain and diffusing direct sunlight in the city's hot, humid climate. Other sustainable
features include greywater collection and re-use systems, high-efficiency MEP systems, a green wall podium and the use of native plants throughout the landscaping.
The 76,000-square-meter tower features 132 luxury residential units, whose interiors were designed by AIA Chicago.

Weird. Not to stir up trouble but when the first renders of 432 Park Avenue came out everyone was complaining about towers that are too tall and slender. This one has almost exactly the same dimensions and it gets universal praise from the get-go. Is it because it's shape and facade is more, shall I say, imaginative?

I like this tower a lot too, very unique design, though it would probably look better in a cluster than it would by itself (with just those two short towers next to it.)

Those two towers are 254m in height and it's surrounded by many highrises.

Those two short towers are 254m tall and there are several other highrises in that area too.

This is how the tower fits in that place

Two more supertalls have been proposed in that area alone. Those two supertalls including this this one are awaiting approvals.

i do like 432 PA, but i think i have an idea why it is called too slim. 432PA has quite a repetive design, which makes it look very tall, because there is no real scale to it, this building has lines that make it easier for people to apprechiate its height. another thing is that 432PA has very large windows, which gives it the look of being even slimmer than it is. a rather rounded facade also gives a bit of depth and the facade style also makes it not as repetive, although i am not a big fan of the facade at all.

Wow, awesome new one for Mumbai.

It's pretty thin but not so much as 432 Park. At least the aspect ratio looks less extreme. Plus the facade is much better.

MUMBAI | Imperial Tower | 400m | 1312ft | 116fl | Pro

Imperial Tower, 116 stories, 400 meters - Mumbai's tallest building - Architect: Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill
http://www.archdaily.com/369617/adri...tallest-tower/







Quote:
Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill Architecture has unveiled a competition-winning prototype in which they hope will become Mumbai’s tallest skyscraper. Standing 400-meters about the crowded city streets, the 116-story Imperial Tower’s curvilinear form is aerodynamically shaped to “confuse the wind.” Its 132 “spacious and luxurious” residential units are punctuated by north- and south-facing sky gardens, which break up wind currents around the tower and provide unprecedented access to natural light and views of the Arabian sea.

Providing a strong visual contrast to its neighbors predominantly masonry cladding, the tower’s “highly sustainable”, metallic skin blocks heat gain and diffuses direct sunlight in the hot and humid climate of Mumbai. Further sustainable measures will be used on greywater and rainfall collection, highly efficient mechanical systems, a green-wall podium and the use of native vegetation.
