Transparent House, Dubai "Crescent Moon Tower," Competitive Architecture Proposal

Similar to fully developed nations with well-established and advanced economies, Dubai now generates its revenue from tourism, real estate and financial services. Abiding by the competitive requirements, the structure was designed to feature recreational, educational and cultural activities to further promote a booming economy.

As a means of showcasing Dubai’s future direction, as well as signifying its growth from Westernized port city to business hub, the designers employed their grandiose interpretation of futuristic architecture.

While still embracing the city’s rich cultural heritage, Transparent House chose a crescent shape as a symbol of the traditional Islamic world.
