Tower with a Twist

Infinity Tower, Dubai, UAE  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved



Construction work nears completion on the Infinity Tower of Dubai. It will be the tallest skyscraper in the world with a 90 degree twist. Incidentally it is designed and engineered by the same American firm that did the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building on record.

  7. A completely surprising and a little bit disturbing shape also. We wonder if the tower is going to resist or to collapse by turning on itself.

    But only the top few floors will get to experience the full 90 degree twist, right?

  12. What a stunning example of modern architecture! Love the well chosen image display and the ‘cool’ blue hues. The inclusion of the figures in the window cleaning rig provides a great sense of scale.
