Symbiotic Towers by AmorphouStudio
Inspired by the formation of a desert oasis and a voronoi pattern as found in natural systems, the proposal for the Symbiotic Towers in Dubai seeks to integrate contextual environmental data into a synthesis of forms, skins and public spaces. Consisting of residential, hotel and office towers, connected on the ground level by a double-deck pedestrian shopping plaza, the connecting plaza creates two environments that can be used throughout the different seasons. The towers’ geometry and skins were developed in response to Dubai's climatic conditions. Radiation data of the hottest seasons in Dubai (May-October) were mapped into the geometry and used to shape the form and orientation of each tower.
