Zabeel Tower

This project was my entry to the 2009 edition of Thyssen Krupp international competition. The aim was to design an iconic tower located in the Zabeel Park in Dubai. The main feature of the tower lies in its envelope. It is made of hundreds of sails cut in a special fabric that captures water from dew. This is possible because all these sails can unfold at night to collect water from dew. They then collapse during the day, providing an efficient protection against the sun.  —Mekene Images
