'the strata tower' designed by architects hani rashid and lise anne couture of asymptote recently began
construction in abu dhabi.
the 40 story luxary residential project is set to be complete in 2011 with a total height
of 160 m. the design will be featured this month at cityscape abu dhabi from may 13-15. the most distinctive
features of the building are its environmentally responsive louver system and side mounted heli-pad. the louvre
system was designed specifically for the intense heat of the region and is integrated into the building's
cantilevered exoskeleton which surrounds the building. sophisticated computer and parametric modeling was
used throughout the project creating a new icon for the waterfront development in abu dhabi.

Abu Dhabi is catching Dubai up. I hope this twisting tower wont have problems like The Infinity in Duabi.
