this has now been listed on the projects section of Aedas website. from the website:

KPT Tower, Karachi, Pakistan

his mixed-use project will be the first landmark building in Karachi Port. The scheme is to act as catalyst to other major regeneration initiatives planned for the port, and is to provide a landmark for this new Business District.

The distinct form responds to ecological concerns with a reduced carbon footprint through the use of passive environmental controls. setting a precedent in Pakistan.

Our London and Manchester offices have collaborated with our specialist Advanced Modelling Group using Ecotect analysis to interpret the climatic performance.

Why always the giant tower with mini-me's next to it?
That really ruins the sight for me.

actually the smaller towers will make the composition look more complete. The setting will be great.
