Height alone is insufficient.
Today, vertical limits are practical rather than technological. The creation of super tall iconic buildings has always been linked to advancements in technology. The icon of tomorrow must climb technologically. The design for the world’s tallest twin towers in Jumeirah, Dubai proposes a combination of decentralizing technologies in order to achieve sustainable iconic status:
1. A decentralized energy infrastructure that produces energy at the point of consumption
2. A decentralized tall building structural system allowing the world’s most slender buildings.
