Crystal Towers – Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

leave a comment »


Building: Crystal Towers
Location: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Architect: Henning Larsen Architects
Structural Engineers: Thornton Tomasetti
MEP: Hoare Lea Consulting Engineers
Completion: 2013
AE Interests: Erratic window placement creates a very unique, natural appearance. The buildings are not perfectly squared, instead slightly twisting in a very organic progression. Vastly different than the normal, rectangular shapes of high rise buildings.
