Golden West Bay (Office Tower) by Marwan Zgheib
2012 - 2013, Platinum A' Architecture, Building and Urban Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Marwan Zgheib states that the inspiration for Golden West Bay Office Tower came suddenly.
Creativity
The Golden West Bay concept exemplifies a pure geometrical scenario tailored by a clear physical language. The diagonal cut of one pure rectangle and the sliding of the parts resulted in a striking, modern three-dimensional image. The two sliding parts challenge gravity and embrace one another through a joint. This innovative design approach creates an eye-catching structure that stands out from the rest. By forming this elegant and monumental silhouette, the building is seen to celebrate the strength of monolithic symmetrical sculptures which in turn symbolize power. The conceptual massing reflects the sliding idea of volumes with a central vertical and structural core.
Design Challenges
Marwan Zgheib did not encounter any design challenges while designing the award winning Golden West Bay Office Tower.
Production Technology
From an engineering point of view, the Golden West Bay Office Tower by Marwan Zgheib is a good example of a highly-developed project.
