Pharaonic project in Dubai: a proposal to build a giant futuristic ring around the tallest building in the world

In Dubai, a renowned architecture firm proposed a conceptual design A massive five-story circular structure that will encase the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraperWith a height of 829.8 meters, almost twice as tall as the Empire State Building.

project, known as downtown circlehooks up “Community, luxury and future urban planning” In a very ambitious design that has brought to life a series of captivating images.

Najmus Chowdhury and Nils Remes, principal architects at ZNera Space Studio, envision Downtown Circle as A horizontal line against the dizzying and futuristic skyline of Dubai’s seemingly endless skyscrapers,

As austere and radical as Downtown Circle’s design is, it is – for now – practically and financially impossibleThey intercept Chowdhary and Remes.

“The idea was to start a conversation”Chowdhary told CNN. “Something that can make People will reconsider urban developmentThat the city’s overcrowding be reconsidered… We are promising a sustainable city”.

“We are working on very important aspects that drive debate about how we plan cities,” Remes said. “We chose Burj Khalifa because it is in a very dense urban area, and we wanted to address the issues that come with dense populations in cities.”,

The structure, which is intended to rise 550 meters above street level, will radius of more than three kilometers, the ring will rest five giant pillars – with their bases located on vacant lots – which may serve an additional purpose.

“We wanted to create a microclimate in the city center and a kind of envelope around the area to control the temperature and make it more livable when it is hot”Chowdhary explained. “You can use them [pilares] Vertical as an Urban Air Purifier”.

The structure of the columns may include a Innovative smog filtering design created by ZNera SpaceWhich was shortlisted for the 2018 World Architecture Festival Award in the “Future Experimental Project” category.

In Dubai, temperatures often exceed 40°C, and the architects wanted their design to set a new benchmark for sustainability in the region.

“Entire Rooftop Solar Panels Will Expand”Chowdhary disclosed. “What we want to do is apply a technology that we have already used in a previous project, hydrogen solar cells.”

this technology Uses solar energy to convert water into hydrogenWhich can provide power to the air conditioning and power to the building.

designed under Dubai Master Plan to achieve a sustainable urban environment by 2040.

The concept also proposes transportation options from one end to the other, including one electric tram system which can reach speeds of 100 kilometers per hour and infrastructure for air taxis.

This architectural ambition is not exempt engineering challengesIn form of Creating a structure strong enough to hold internal features, yet light enough to be supported by pillars.

“The structure itself is quite light. I imagine it as a[large]airplane: the skin, the ribs, become the structure and the interior is all hollow”Chowdhary noted.

“But then it’s supported by these pillars and the circular ring,” he continued. “We chose to make it spherical because it is the most stable structural motif.”

Remes said the proposed Downtown Circle would wedge residential spaces between commercial, corporate and cultural areas to create a “self-sustaining city within a city”. “If you live there, you can walk 15 to 20 minutes to your office, or your park, or your home. It’s hard to do that in Dubai.”

Design is the highlight of the interior a continuous green beltdesignated skypark, which connects the five floors of the structure. “Skypark is the backbone of the whole design,” Chowdhury said. “It will be a mixed-use green space and it will also serve as a place to rethink what agriculture will look like in the future, especially in cities.”

Remes said, “If we look at history, agriculture came first and then we built the city.” “Now we have lost a bit of this concept. With this green belt within the structure, we want to bring agriculture and food production back to the city centre.

The concept is attracting attention, but not all of it positive. Since the mockups were posted on the company’s Instagram page, some commenters have said The design could destroy the fabric of the downtown district.
