Layers of Dubai
Feel the Nature, Love the nature, it will never fail you, in order to solve those problems – by the people -they must first love their nature and know how it’s important for the living, life and the future. The art and inspiration must come out from the natural powers itself, with some fancy windscape and sunscape shows all around the form, and by making the nature deal directly with the form and control it.
The idea of making the people knows the real use of the sun , wind , water , and green spaces, to make them look from another perspective to the powers of nature that will save the planet, they will Surely will take care of it, and protect it at all costs. To have a generation capable of saving the World, open-minded people that know what they can do.
Dubai and UAE has a unique character from the way they become one of the greatest economic powers in the world, starting from dust to the top. The main design concept is based on the Dubai layers and the harmony of all those , land, earth and nature. the layers of Dubai in the past to this moment that contained a sandy land , plants , sky, sun , winds , buildings ending up high with skyscrapers
Void of Power and Inspiration
the 2 towers will play an important role in Attracting people to the site with their strange look and high towering that can be seen from any part of the city , each one is 140 m high, making 2 towers is better than making 1 huge mass that blocks the view and this could have harmed the skylines of Dubai . With this steel lines on it, it can inspire the attendance with its visual effects in night, the movement, and the sky view.
The contour lines defers from space to another with wide heights in the site , the form is shaped like that in order to fit well in the site and it’s Adjacent to the contour lines that is higher than 5 meters.
Performance: With free resources all around Dubai , the land art generator will distribute clean energy all over the city.
A land art generator needs lots of energy in order to support the city, on a huge site, it needs lots of sustainable techniques in order to take full advantage of wind and sun and not relying on only one power generation method, which can get the viewers bored with the art itself. The idea is to integrate the sun techniques with the wind in order to make the required power from sun and wind all over the year. Taking full advantage of the sun and tiring the winds until it leave the building.
