The Nano Towers

The Nano Towers // Dubai // UAE // Allard Architecture // 1

From Allard Architecture:

‘The Nano Towers were proposed as the new headquarters of the DuBiotech Research Park in Dubai. This mixed use development offers 160 000m2 officespace, laboratories, hotel, residential and associated support facilities in a 262m high tower. The canopy at ground level provides sunshading while creating a dramatic entrance to the towers: a conceptual ground plane from which the towers grow.

Architecturally interesting is the repetitive grid of the exoskeletal structure, which has non-curved beams of equal length. The entire facade of the tower is faceted, inspired by a nano scale carbon tube, the structure creates junctions where the geometry shifts from vertical to horizontal. This creates multiple opportunities for dividing the interior space along mullion lines.’
