According to its architects, the conceptual design, “has been inspired by energy in all its forms, from the helical waves generated around deep-space quasars, to the spiralling energy of waves“. Indeed, the great tower seems to rise into the sky in kinetic spirals that give the structure a gracefulness, dynamism and mobility that characterise it. The design was also developed with sustainability and energy-efficiency in mind. The helical shapes reduce the tower’s wind loads and, as a result, the mass of the structural elements and foundations during construction. At the same time, the spiral columns running the length of the tower form an “open helical organic mesh” that allows for the incorporation of open atriums for light, ventilation and vertical green spaces.
