Blossoming Flower

greek firm petra architects have designed 'blossoming dubai' for their proposal for
the zaabeel park tall emblem structure competition.

they based their design on the form of a blossoming flower. the tower is equipped
with two elevators running on spiral rails (spiral of the most simple geometry turning
135 degrees while ascending 138 meters). these lifts ascend from lower ground floor
(where the visitors enter) to the cafeteria level and the viewing platform above.
apart from the previously mentioned elevators that can cover all visitor access
(including disabled access), there are also two staircases fitted in the spiraling elements
of the building. the latter can be used on an emergency case.

Oh da... deabia astept sa vad cum se comporta la un incendiu
Adevarul e ca e din cele mai decente propuneri de la concursul asta.

  1. Turnurile oricum sunt cazuri speciale fiecare... ca nu ai cum sa ai distanta maxima pana afara de 40m (sau care o fi) daca tu esti la ultimul etaj si pana "afara" ai 138m cum e aici :))

  2. Dar tu chiar crezi ca poate cineva cobora pe scarile alea care sunt oarecum "afara"? Mai bine puneau tobogane de urgenta ;)
