Sights of Dubai - by Craig Hill

Design and Inspiration for Nakheel Tower in Dubai

July 30th 2007 11:46
The Nakheel Tower, the future world’s tallest skyscraper, will consist of four individual towers. It will feature design elements from Spain’s gardens of Alhambra, Egypt’s harbor of Alexandria, Iran’s Isfahan bridges, and Morocco’s promenade of Tangier, and wil be a "green project".

“Nakheel has sought inspiration not just from Islamic design but also from the Islamic principles of inclusion, innovation, diversity, excellence, growth and progress. These are the same principles that have motivated and guided Islamic culture and helped create its great cities throughout history. Now they are shaping the cities of the future,” says Sultan bin Sulayem.
