Designed as both an urban gateway and a self-sustaining city, this 42-story prototype would be one of the greenest, most aesthetically striking and technologically innovative mixed-use buildings in the world. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Eleven jutting, crystalline structures of varying size–with cantilevers of up to 230 feet over the water–are joined at a base largely concealed beneath the surface, creating the illusion of independent structures. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
With its wings unfurled as if in midflight, this powerfully poetic structure is an evocation of the natural world at its most dynamic, and ecologically interdependent. That inspiration, combined with concepts from automobile design, has been developed into a sculptural, asymmetrical form. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
