Designed in harmony with nature, the DIFC Central proposal is an iconic, highperformance building that speaks of the optimism of a sustainable future by providing for the needs of its occupants, socially, culturally and economically. Grounded in the earth and reaching for the sky, the dramatic, soaring form of the paired towers evokes an organic sculpture shaped by the winds of the desert. At ground level, two sculpted towers define a major glazed public space, or piazza, and emphasize two major axes that bisect the DIFC site. A dynamic wind turbine floats above the apex of the space, creating a visual focal point while harnessing the abundant energy supply.

The 100 story tall ‘West Tower’ and the 75 story ‘East Tower’ are structurally inter-dependant but incorporate cross connections that tie the tower cores together. These paired towers are then able to act as a single structure or vertical truss, which increases the slenderness of each tower and reduces the overall mass of each core. Shaped to harness the prevailing ‘Shamal’ winds that blow from the Persian Gulf, the towers’ form maximizes energy production from the vertical axis wind turbine held between the structural cross connections. This iconic wind turbine is a bold statement on future sustainability, both environmental and financial.

Those last two renders we saw ages ago and thought they were for the DIFC Central project but instead they're early designs for the towers shown in the first post.

Dubai, the gift that keeps on giving.

Well these are towers that any city would be proud of, and 400m is pretty darn tall, though maybe not so tall by Dubai standards

Dubai really is Earth's version of Coruscant.

^^Reign, not rain. But no big deal.

That thing in between the towers that looks like a double-helix is really tacky. I think this would like a lot better as to unconnected towers or at least just connected by a sky bridge.

It rains supertalls over there. I think it was meant as an expression.
