I decided to post this since the construction method is interesting.


Stats
Name: O-14
Location: Business Bay (in front of Ubora Towers and near Burj al Alam)
Height: 102m
Floors: 22
Use: Offices
Space: 300,000 sq feet
Architects: http://www.reiser-umemoto.com
Other random facts:
Has 1000 openings.
The building's held up by the core and exoskeleton so the space inside is column free.
1m space between facade and windows allows hot air to rise and cool air to come in from below.

not really sure it would sute in the Netherlands, maybe in Japan, see Toyo Ito's work in Tokyo.
anyway, this is a very good 21st century architecture presence in Dubai, which, BTW, i couldn't say the same for many other highrises in this city.

^^ What if that Miami tower proposal was designed by the same Architect?
