Man, it would be sick if the swimming pool has a GLASS BOTTOM! Otherwise that is the coolest concept for a swimming pool that I have ever seen. The night shots are unequivocally awesome with the lighting, Looks like high-intensity LEDs there!!!

March 2007
Aspire Tower. Doha (Qatar). Hadi Simaan. 2006



For the 2006 Asian Games (2-15 December), the city of Doha, capital of the small but wealthy country of Qatar, has undergone an urban transformation that in a short time has given it new sports structures and hotels - many of which have soon become powerful urban icons.

One of these is the Sports City Tower, designed by the American Hadi Simaan and the Frenchman Etienne Tricaud of the Arep Studio.
At 300 metres tall it is the highest building in Qatar, while its size means that it houses not only a large luxury hotel, but also a sports museum and a top-floor restaurant with a panoramic view of the city overlooking the sea.
The building is not only distinctive because of its height. The steel mesh structure forming the tower, reduces slightly on one side to create a gentle curve and half-moon profile. This solution was employed not only for the appearance of the building, but was also planned by the Arep Studio designers to create "natural" protection from the sunæs rays.

The metal mesh also protects against the wind while, at the same time, allowing the passage of natural light that helps heat the interior.
There is a clear allusion to the spirit and tradition of the Olympic Games in the circular elements that wrap around the tower. Each one has a different diameter that grows from the bottom to the top. The intrados connects these rings to the central structure and thus gives the effect of columns stacked one on top of the other. The central nucleus of the tower has been built out of concrete and, as it is narrower than the rest of the structure, it recalls the handle of the Olympic torch. This area houses technical systems, the emergency staircase and lifts.
Its size, distinctive shape and allusion to the Olympic spirit meant that even before it was completed the Sports City Tower became an emblem for the Asian Games but also, above all, an icon for the city, which is currently undergoing a phase of strong economic, social and urban development.
The Sports City Tower is even more atmospheric at night when it is illuminated and from the top of its 300 floors overlooks the city.
