Symbol of Abu Dhabi since the creation of the city, this project to be realized, will be the emblem of this city.
Erected at a crossroad situated on a headland over the sea, this tower will be constituted of a museum in its basis, of a glass veil encircling offices and of a panoramic restaurant, where on its frontwall will pass by permanently, owing to a computer : the day, the hour, and the temperature.
This tower will be seen from very far, and will be illuminated by night. It will constitute the symbol of the founder father of the city of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh ZAYED, relying on the modernity and his dynamism. This President knew how to create a true federal capital.
The structure of this monument is composed of a concrete core and of glazed frontwalls. Lifts will be climbing up to the panoramic point and to the computerized clock. This architecture is the result of an international competition motivating the importance of this capital city.
Its height, deliberately limited to 200 m expresses the rigour of this Emirate regarding its choices well ordered with respect to the urbanism.
