Informations

The Imperial Towers were six of the earliest lighthouses built on Lake Huron by the Canadian government. The designation Imperial is not certain, but historians speculate that because the towers were public construction built under the colonial administration while Canada was a self-governing colony of Britain , the name would assure funding from the British Empire's Board of Trade.

Informations

Doha Tower, also known as Burj Doha (Arabic: برج دوحة) and previously named as Burj Qatar and Doha High Rise Office Building, is an iconic high rise tower located in West Bay (Doha), Doha, Qatar. On October 18, 2012, the building received the CTBUH Skyscraper Award for the Best Tall Building Worldwide from the CTBUH. The $125-million office building, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, has a height of 232 metres (761 ft), with 46 stories. In 2004 the project was first named as High Rise Office Building and after completion of construction in 2012 was branded as Burj Doha by the owner, H. E. Sheikh Saud bin Muhammed Al Thani. The public has noted the buildings "phallic form", suggestive of what Nouvel calls a “fully assumed virility.” Doha Tower comprises 46 floors above ground, 3 floors below ground and a total gross floor area of approximately 110,000 m². It has no central core, leaving more internal space available to its occupants. The design is unique, the first skyscraper with internal reinforced concrete dia-grid columns, which form a cross (X) shape that connects with the eye-catching cylindrical facade. The design expresses the local culture, connecting the very modern with ancient Islamic designs (Mashrabiya). Islamic screens were designed to shade the building from high temperatures as well as the unpleasant sand residue found on glass throughout the region. The building is designed to hold offices for businesses wishing to operate in the diverse business district of West Bay (Doha). Doha Tower is owned by Sheikh Saud bin Muhammed Al Thani and managed by Hamad Bin Saoud Group (HBS)].
