Continuing our coverage of the the thyssenkrupp elevator award to develop an iconic tall
emblem structure for zaabeel park in dubai, heer is francois blanciak architects' proposal.
The tower is conceived as virtually reversible, its top and bottom parts having similar circular
characteristics. in sharp contrast with the surrounding office buildings, the circulation core
here is not the focus of the plan but an element around which the program of the tower oscillates.
The lower part of the project contains a children’s library on level 1, and a series of 3
conference rooms on level 2. As a reference to islamic architecture, a shaded arcade surrounds
the ground level courtyard that leads to the entrance of the children’s library. hosting

of the podium is used to balance and stabilize the cantilever of the viewing platform.
