Signature Towers & Dubai Financial Market Business Bay, UAE
The Signature Towers consist of three 81-story high towers (358 meters), 65 floors (292 meters), 52 residential floors (230 meters) and four floors. The unique geometry of the towers will distinguish the project as one of the most daring and innovative discoveries in the integration of architecture and engineering in the whole region.
The striking design of the tower creates a new presence that pierces the skyline with a powerful and recognizable silhouette. The fluid character of the towers is generated through an intrinsically dynamic composition of volumes.
The intertwined towers will merge into a common base with shops, restaurants and services that will support the demand of the inhabitants of the towers. This "choreographed" movement will unite the three towers and the base in a single overall gesture and "weave" through the base a series of public spaces, bridges and the surrounding landscape.
Zaha Hadid's design for the Dancing Towers confirms the role of Business Bay Development at the forefront of Dubai's rapidly evolving future. The three towers rise above the stream and project themselves as an icon for the surrounding developments and for the gulf region.
