Capital Gate Tower

Location: Abu Dhabi UAE
Customer: Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Company
Architect: RMJM Architects
Date: 2010
Project Type: Corporate Buildings, Hotels
Size/Scope of Project: The world`s furthest leaning tower, clad with Tigris 2100, a custom version to achieve the flowing form.

The distinctive stainless steel ‘splash’ that descends from the 19th floor, is a design element and a shading device that eliminates over 30 percent of the sun’s heat before it reaches the Capital Gate building. The splash also twists around the building towards the south to shield the tower as much as possible from direct sunlight.
