1 Kilometer High Kingdom Tower*/



1 Kilometer High Kingdom Tower

By the end of this decade the Kingdom tower will replace Burj Khalifa as
the worlds tallest building. The structure will extend to a mind boggling
height of 1 kilometer(3280 feet) and will be constructed in Jeddah, Saudi
Arabia. Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the building
will house a Four Seasons hotel apartment area, office space, luxury
condos and the worlds highest observatory.
The buildings spire shape was not a random choice. The architect explains:
With its slender, subtly asymmetrical massing, the tower evokes a bundle of
leaves shooting up from the ground–a burst of new life that heralds more
growth all around it. This symbolizes the tower as a catalyst for increased
development around it.
The sleek, streamlined form of the tower was inspired by the folded fronds
of young desert plant growth. The way the fronds sprout upward from the
ground as a single form, then start separating from each other at the top,
is an analogy of new growth fused with technology.
While the design is contextual to Saudi Arabia, it also represents an
evolution and a refinement of an architectural continuum of skyscraper
design. The three-petal footprint is ideal for residential units, and the
tapering wings produce an aerodynamic shape that helps reduce structural
loading due to wind vortex shedding. The Kingdom Tower design embraces its
architectural pedigree, taking full advantage of the proven design
strategies and technological strategies of its lineage, refining and
advancing them to achieve new heights.
The tower is expected to cost $1.2 billion which forms only a small
fraction of the total Kingdom city budget of $20 bilion.
