0-14: New Commercial Tower in Dubai

Well, for lack of a better way to put it…Dubai is on some crazy ish [check out this gallery of architecture in Dubai]. This new tower, 0-14, was designed by Reiser + Umemoto RUR Architecture P.C. and developer Shahab Lutfi. The 22 story building will house over 300,000 square feet that is enclosed by a facade which is perforated with over 1,000 openings [damn]. Not only is it pretty fly looking, but its also structural, while allowing for natural lighting and ventilation within the highrise [can you say passive solar and chimney effect?].

Interested? Find out more at Archinect, which is where I got these images in the first place…
