Dubai, a place with iconic skyscrapers, high-rise buildings, the world’s tallest building (Burj Khalifa with 829,8m) and the twisted skyscraper,is now planning to build the world’s tallest twin towers.
Architects Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SMO) were the ones who designed twisted Cayan Tower and now it is completed. This skyscraper that is 307 meters high. The twisted profile of this tower reduces wind forces as it disperses it around the exterior. Metal facade was designed to screen interior from a desert sunlight. Cayan Tower now became a significant part of Dubai’s 21st century skyline.
Developers Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding want to build a huge leisure and residential area including towers that will be as its centerpiece. Dubai Creek Home, as they named it, will be a new landmark and tourist area with 39, 000 homes, 22 hotels, retail outlets, tourist attractions and of course twin towers.
There are no concrete architects named for this project and the construction date of twin towers still hasn’t been confirmed. Also twin towers’ height remains as a developers’ secret.
