Transparent House

The Crescent Moon Tower is the architectural design project submitted to the 11th ThyssenKrup Elevator Architecture Award by the California-based firm Transparent House.

In response to the challenge to design a tall emblem structure for Za’abeel Park, one that should signify the modern face of Dubai, Transparent House chose a larger than life crescent shape that has a two-fold statement.
First it boldly identifies Dubai as part of the Islamic world, and second, because of the technical difficulty of building such a structure, it proclaims Dubai’s advanced level of technical and economic development.

The Crescent Moon Tower is designed to accommodate a children’s library, a conference facility, a restaurant, multiple cafes, and an open-air observation platform.

Dubai pushes the envelope with architecture ay?
 
HOW.........................
 
simply awesome we can map with digital 3d projectors.....
 
Everyone... this is CONCEPTUAL... it means it's not an actual structure, yet! It's not even under construction! It's called the wonder of computer design and engineering.
 
Aligned according to the moon or sun during certain times of year will be even more spectacular. GREAT work!!!!
 
Very nice design and awesome eye candy but how about a small version to fit the "house" connotation...
 
Marvellous
*******************
 
It is def a cool building but what it stands for not so much
 
Amazing design! It will be interesting to see what type of structural design this will use, considering it's unusual shape ;)

I love these architectural structure, how do these people get such remarkable ideas
 
Tbh, when I think about it, all these counties have these amazing buildings... But them here in Sydney u find nothing, a bridge, a crapy theme park that's not worth going to, then the opera house, Idk why they can't put something like that here that makes going out side worth while :(.... Lol, I actually put my honest truth into this, but it's sad cause I know no one cares :'(
 
add me userss !! :) :) lemme knw abt u all :)

Very beautiful, is it work?
 
Marvelous.... Super structure... Dubai proved it once again
 
What an amazing piece of architecture. The sheer number of mathematical calculations to allow for a place of such magnitude is a testament to the wonders of technology and the human mind.

Probably hard to relax in...people always taking pictures. Just saying must be hard to live in a tourist attraction.
 
Wonderful building. The architecture in Dubai never ceases to delight or amaze
Translate
 
It's a cute building…. But how people go to relax in…?
 
False. Dubai only wishes it had grass.
 
That's just incredible. How...
 
This is computer imagery you idiots. It has not been built yet!
 
this is really unique and genius architecture ..:O
 
How can a bankrupt country afford to build fancy buildings?

wow! Isnt it amazing how complex the mind is?
 
I agree.....this is a projection of Armageddon.....like the fears of Hitler's architect...Albert Spear....
 
or we could just keep our money here to help OUR own hungry children and homeless people!
 
during the nights it should be toured during the day also maybe a hotel some day
 
Its a great reminder that Islam requires the enslavement and or death of all none Muslims
 
same does capitalism, Jim.. oh sorry, actually capitalism requires the enslavement of its own proselites...
 
Thats what happens when you watch too many Tim Burton movies.
 
Nice but is it any useful? Given that Dubai is a very awfully planned city
 
Magnificent tower
 
Even though it is nice, it is not comparable to the moon up in the sky.
 
Phenomenal work of Architecture ....
