AS GG designs Kingdom Tower to be the world’s tallest building.
AS + GG design for Kingdom Tower is both organic and distinctly high-tech. “With its sleek, subtly asymmetrical massing, reminiscent of the tower shoot a bunch of leaves from the ground, an explosion of new life that the growth around it to display anything,” Smith said. It was elegant, simplified form of the tower by the fronds bent seedling growth of desert inspired, said Gordon Gill. “The way the fronds grow upward from the earth as a single form to begin, then, to separate from each other at the top, is an analogy of the new growth blended with the technology,” he said. “We are sure by His Highness and Jeddah Economic Society together in order to define the path to the kingdom.” While the design is contextual to Saudi Arabia, but is a further development and refinement of a continuum of architectural design skyscrapers. The imprint of three petals is ideal for apartments, and rejuvenates the wing, to produce an aerodynamic shape that reduces structural load by vortex shedding wind. Kingdom Tower design incorporates the architectural pedigree, the unrestricted use strategies proven design and technology strategies of his line, refinement and development to new heights. The result is an elegant, inexpensive and very building, both built in the tradition and is rooted acting aggressively, taking advantage of new and innovative ideas on technology, building materials, life cycle considerations and energy savings. For example, the project is a high performance exterior wall system that minimizes the energy consumption by reducing the thermal load. In addition, each of the Kingdom Tower on three sides, creating a series of notches, the pockets of shadow areas of the construction of the shield and sun terraces with stunning views of Jeddah and the Red Sea. The large amount of United Tour requires a system, the world’s most modern lift. The Kingdom Tower complex contains 59 elevators, including 54 single and five double-decker elevators, with 12 escalators. Elevators serve the observatory is at a speed of 10 meters per second in both directions. Another unique feature of the design is a sky terrace, 30 meters (98 feet) in diameter, at 157th This is an outdoor space infrastructure for the use of floor penthouse. AS + GG is also developing a master plan for the 23-acre waterfront of the Kingdom Tower, which will include the tower, the residential and commercial buildings, a shopping center, high quality outdoor spaces and other amenities surrounding it. The Waterfront District offers a coherent and pedestrian-friendly for the Kingdom, in turn creating a pleasant area along Lake City Kingdom. Kingdom Tower
