The Stunning Design And Architect
Upon its opening, the seven-story pillarless landmark is described as the most beautiful building in the world. It features a stainless steel facade illuminated with 14000 meters of Arabic calligraphy which also functions as glass windows.
The landmark stands tall at 77 meters. The building reflects lines of inspirational poetry by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. One of the three quotes enveloping the landmark translates to: “The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it and execute it. It isn’t something you await, but rather create.”
It uses 4000 megawatts of electricity produced by solar panels. Designed by Killa Designs, a UAE based architecture firm, the building overlooks Dubai’s main thoroughfare. The architectural marvel has also achieved LEED Platinum status, a worldwide rating reserved for the world’s most energy-efficient and environmental designs.
