Has anybody seen this proposal before?



Abu Dhabi Tower - United Arab Emirates

A design for a 750m high landmark tower set in an extensive mixed use waterfront development comprising offices, residential, hotel, tourist facilities, retail and leisure plus parking.

Denton Corker Marshall has conducted various experiments in designing supra-scaled towers. The Abu Dhabi Tower is an ambitious proposal for an iconic landmark that is subjected to the formal proposition of scalelessness first developed in the First Government House tower project.

yes, I have seen the masterplan it was part of. Grollo its by a well known australian group ( not DCM) but I can say more as we signed CAs before we went into the studio, we were intervieinwing them for a project we wanted them to do for us.
Essentailly its a hotel complex that rotates ( dont know how yet but thats the plan) and each section is seperated.
Sounds impossible but when we saw the entire site masterplan it was fucking insane, like an entire city at the end of the cornich in AD.

The buildings on the beach in the first render look very ARM, sort of like the docklands masterplan :)
