Modern Architecture Award winning Design by Zaha Hadid
Certain Modern architecture buildings once constructed alter a city’s skyline significantly and give it a distinctive and recognizable character. For example, the Duomo in Florence, St Peter’s in Rome, The Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Mary Axe Tower in London, to name some of the more obvious candidates. Zaha Hadid’s awe inspiring design for Dubai’s ‘Dancing Towers’ is potentially one of these. This magnificent trio of interlinked towers rises above the famous ‘Khor Dubai’ watercourse and sets a prestigious new standard for future modern architecture developments in the surrounding areas.
Modern Architecture – Dancing Towers By Zaha Hadid
The tower’s breathtaking modern architecture composition manifests as an authoritative and intriguing new presence in the cityscape, the impact of this spectacular modern architecture structure is magnified through its captivating reflection in the Creek. Zaha Hadid’s extraordinary prize winning creation is intended to pierce the Dubai skyline with a new, unmistakable outline. The sinuous character of the towers’ design is articulated through sophisticated engineering to maintain the energetic interaction of forms. Seeming to defy gravity the towers twist and turn in an apparently impossible way. They seem imbued with life and this in turn symbolizes the energetic growth implicit in Dubai’s global profile. The three towers are cleverly inter-connected to link office spaces, the hotel, retail outlets, leisure facilities and private residencies. The separate facades are rotated dramatically to facilitate spectacular views from all aspects of the complex towards the Creek and the wider surroundings.

Hashim Al Dabal, of Dubai Properties said: ‘Zaha Hadid‘s design for the Dancing Towers confirms Business Bay’s role as a project that reflects Dubai’s rapidly changing future. ‘ He expanded on this by stating that the ‘Dancing Towers’
‘ … incorporate avant-garde definitions of functionality and form that will not only create a distinctive landmark at Business Bay, but also symbolise a new phase in Dubai’s architectural standards’ This is a prime example of one of Zaha Hadid’s conceptual projects becoming spectacularly real. The ‘Dancing Towers’ appear linked together in a complex and unending choreography. At once united, but at the same time, apparently free to twist and turn independently. No longer considered to be too fanciful or impractical to construct Hadid’s remarkable designs and modern architecture, like this one, are in demand all over the world.
