"Organic" is probably the single best word to describe this breathtaking new mixed-use (hotel, residential and office) complex located on the edge of Doha Bay in Doha, Qatar. The coastal topography and natural vitality of its location inspired the fluid curves and staggered heights of the design, and the towers boast a dramatic interplay of shadow and reflected sea and sky created by the glass exterior creating an overall image of futuristic "glass castles." This curved design also allows for circular floor plans that provide panoramic views from every floor. Extensive use of natural light and an eco-friendly rooftop garden further reinforce the organic connection.
