JERUSALEM | Pyramid Tower | 105m | 26 fl | App

Quote:
29 July 2015
Studio Libeskind has won planning permission to build a 105-metre-high pointed skyscraper in the centre of Jerusalem – set to become the city's second-tallest building.

Called the Pyramid Tower, the 26-storey, mixed-use building will be constructed next to the Mahane Yehuda market – commonly called "The Shuk" – in the centre of the Israeli city.

With a height of 105 metres, it will be just 16 metres shorter than the city's tallest building – the 121-metre-high Holyland Tower 1.

Designed in conjunction with local architect Yigal Levi, the tower will contain 200 luxury apartments, a boutique hotel, and a rooftop restaurant and observatory that will offer sweeping views.


The project is expected to break ground by 2019. According to reports, construction must begin within five years or the building permits could be revoked.

This building seems to fit Israel quite well. The arches at the base can be seen in lower surrounding buildings, and the facade is reminiscent if the abstract brutalist architecture that was constructed in the mid 20th century throughout the country.

Most of Libeskind's buildings are glass and steel, this is different.

I thought the pyramid is a symbol of pharaonic oppression against discriminated ancient peoples in egypt which include the jews.

nice shape but I wouldn't put the pyramid on top of vertical columns. The pyramid shape should go down into the ground.
