Al Dana Tower
Location: Dafna, Qatar
The Al Dana Tower is a ground-breaking structure with a breathtaking spherical conference room, in the shape of a Gulf Pearl (‘Dana’ in Arabic), anchored at only two points and suspended between the two wings of the building on the 20th floor. The marriage of form in this tower depicts its design concept, using pure geometrical forms. This tower takes its primary idea from Ledoux’s engraving ‘Coup d’oeil du théâtre de Besançon’. The expressive potential of the building produced by the treatment of the sphere in space,hung in its corners, and emphasized by the light, bestows a sense of both eminence and preciousness, where the sphere is in fact revealed as a pearl. Al Dana Tower provides 29,000 sqm of office space.
