Belgian architects Giuseppe Farris and Stefan Schoning developed Woven Tower - project “braided” skyscraper, which aims to cover several aspects of Arab culture – the national colors and the social structure and trans-regional enterprise.
The appearance of the building, whose construction is planned in Dubai (UAE), mimics the trunk of date palm fruits and leaves which continue to be an important product in the life of the metropolis and in our days.
This surprising tree gives to townsmen meal, the materials used in traditions of local crafts, manufacturing of fishing boats and the textile industry.
Winding around the elegant high-rise structures futuristic shell symbolically represents the distribution network and commercial routes leading into and out of Dubai, as well as a memory of historical heritage – the dynamic maze of tribal affiliation, formed the modern Arab society is a prosperous city.
Sweeping branches, occupying the area around the skyscraper and the shaping of the landscape, are the walking zone. This symbolizes the land of the hospitality of the people of Dubai and invites passers-by to enter into multi-purpose building, combining social, residential and commercial programs. The work of the authors of the project can be found on the official websites of their architectural studios and offices located in Antwerp:
