The exotic pineapple and honeycomb designed Al Bahr Towers in Abu Dhabi won as Best Overall Project in the Middle East.
An Aedis-designed twin tower was previously hailed by German skyscraper for providing “a dynamic, translucent facade that runs off power generated by photovoltaic panels and which reacts to sunlight.”
Already winning Commercial Project of the Year for the same project, the award was presented to Aedas by Dani Bterrani, CEO of 3dr Models. The award received by the managing director of Aedis Middle East.
The method of integration of elements of the traditional Islamic design into the overall structure, particularly admiring the obscure frontage of the towers amazed the judges.
“Obviously the facade is the unique feature but an important thing about this project is that it combines art and technology. The technology part speaks of its sustainable merits while the art part speaks of the Islamic tradition with a modern integration”, one of the judges commented.
Other’s said, “Al Bahr Towers bring Islamic art and architecture into the 21st century.”
Recently, Abu Dhabi’s striking Al Bahr Towers have been named among the world’s best towers in a highly regarded award for high-rise architecture second to Marilyn Monroe’s Building of Canada in the Best Architecture Awards this year.
