One World Trade Center
|City||New York City|
One World Trade Center (also known as One World Trade, 1 WTC, or Freedom Tower) is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City.1 WTC is the tallest building in the United States, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The supertall structure has the identical title as the North Tower of the original World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of this 16-acre (6.5 ha) World Trade Center site, on the website of the original 6 World Trade Center. The building is bounded by West Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, and Washington Street to the east. The building's architect is David Childs, whose firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) also designed the Burj Khalifa and the Willis Tower. The construction of below-ground utility relocations, footings, and foundations for the new building began on April 27, 2006. One World Trade Center became the tallest construction in New York on April 30, 2012, as it surpassed the height of the Empire State Building.
Burj Doha, also known as Doha Tower (Arabic: ??? ????) and formerly called Burj Qatar and Doha High Rise Office Building, is an iconic high rise tower located in West Bay, Doha, Qatar. On October 18, 2012, the building received the CTBUH Skyscraper Award for the Greatest Tall Building Worldwide in the CTBUH. The $125-million office building, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, has a height of 238 metres (781 feet ), with 46 stories. In 2004 the project was 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 noticed the building's'phallic form', no matter what Nouvel calls a'fully assumed virility. 'Doha Tower comprises 46 floors above floor, three floors below ground and a total gross floor area of approximately 110,000 m². It has no central core, leaving more inner space accessible to its occupants. The design is unique, the first skyscraper with inner reinforced concrete diagrid columns, which form a cross (X) shape that joins with the eye cylindrical facade. The design expresses the local culture, connecting the very contemporary 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 area. The building is designed to hold offices for companies wishing to operate in the diverse business district of West Bay. Doha Tower is owned by Sheikh Saud bin Muhammed Al Thani and operated by Hamad Bin Saoud Group. It is now the sixth tallest building in Doha.Source: Wikipedia
