Etisalat Head Office Building(1985-86)

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Emirates Telecommunication Corporation

Office Building


The Emirates Telecommunications Corporation requested a design for its Dubai site, near the Dubai Creek. The scheme developed into a 16 storey office tower with a facetted curtain wall similar to that of the Abu Dhabi plan but with curved core walls on the east and west faces. The principal materials included granite, green tinted glass and painted aluminum. The project also utilized a radome and the combination of the curvatures of the rotunda. The walls of the tower and the radome, together with the stepped forms of the parking building, have created a most interesting play of forms.
