Building: Al Sharq Tower
Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Architect: SOM
Structural: SOM
Design Completion: 2008
Site Area: 1,300 m2

AE Interests:  The project is conceived as a cellular structure of nine bundled tubes, allowing a height of 360 meters with a challenging aspect ratio of 1:10. Each 12-meter diameter tube, with an individual aspect ratio of 1:30, amplifies the notion of slenderness as the structural cables wrap around each tube’s perimeter, and tie back to the tower’s core concrete structure. The cable structure allows for a column-free floor plate, providing complete flexibility of unit configurations and maximizing views.

Building: Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa
Location: Cape Town, South Africa
Architect: Heatherwick Studio
MEP: Arup
Structural: Arup and Sutherland
Fire Consultant: Arup
Use: Museum
Awards: ArchDaily 2018 Building of the Year Awards

AE Interest: It was a retrofit of an old silo which was a grain dissemination plant (originally built in 1921). The museum holds contemporary art of Africa, also showcasing art of artists from 54 nations. Constructed and carved from a series of forty-two sentinel-like concrete silos spanning the building’s height. Heatherwick scanned a corn kernel to use as the datum for the shape of the atrium’s void. The effect is a kaleidoscope of light and shadow into the floor space. The façade was inspired by Venetian blown-glass lanterns, geometric convex window. Leaving a windowless gallery, where spaces are carved out of the honeycomb interior exposing the building’s core.
