Stretching skyward for 307m, it may not be the tallest residential tower in the Dubai Marina, but it’s certainly a building with twist: a 90-degree spiral over the course of its height, to be precise. Aside from looking cool, the design actually reduces wind forces on the building and reduces direct solar radiation. It was designed by the same firm as the Burj Khalifa.
A firm must-see on your architectural tour of Dubai, the city’s twisting Cayan Tower is an iconic element of the Dubai Marina skyline.
The 75-storey Cayan Tower, formerly the Infinity Tower, is the tallest building in the world that boasts a 90-degree spiral. The building houses 495 luxury apartments.
Each floor was carefully designed to be rotated 1.2 degrees in comparison to the previous floor, forming a unique and stunning twist in the architecture.
