Project peculiarities

The height of the building is about 250m. One of the most "twisted" buildings in the world: each slab is turned to the previous one by 3 degree, the overall vertical axis rotation of the tower - 150 degrees.

Almost unprecedented form of the building, complex deformation model of reinforced concrete structure, as well as accepted by the Client in the course of design project decision to use cold-bent (cold deformed) glass for the building demanded great efforts from everyone involved. Applying cold-deformed glass (35 000 m2 – it is also had no analogues in the world).
