Cayan Tower Named Best Tall Building in Middle East and Afri
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has honored Cayan Tower with the 2014 Best Tall Building award in the?Middle East & Africa regional category. It will compete for the title of Best Tall Building Worldwide at the CTBUH 13th Annual Awards Symposium on November 6.
The supertall tower ? with its striking helical-influenced shape, world class amenities, and views of the Dubai Marina and Arabian Gulf ? is a pure expression of the relationship between the building’s form and the structural framework that supports it.?The helical skyscraper measures 307 meters from base to top, making it the tallest twisting tower in the world. Cayan Tower is also the only building to twist along its length, thanks to an innovative structural design that results in a full 90-degree rotation from its first to last floorplate.
