Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Point Supreme Architects
Joao Ruives Prato
Dubai: extravagantly optimistic, a large construction site, an accelerated urbanism like none before. It is about newness and bigness. A city of 21st century skyscrapers, in a perpetual vertical race for height.
The ThyssenKrupp Emblem Structure denies all comparisons; the absolute form of a cube beats any dimension and guarantees its unique timelessness - it is as though it was always there.
The Golden Cube becomes a large frame that captures the ever-changing skyline of the city. The structure supports a horizontal plateau in the sky: a suspended oasis with a view.
ThyssenKrupp equips the building with a state-of-the art circulation system: four types of elevators, escalators follow the circular frame of the building and a capsule rolls along a second one. The structure acts like a pedestal for different types of mechanical movement.
The Golden Cube is a gigantic adornment. A monument to construction. A new icon for Dubai.
