It definitely stands out from all buildings which are currently under construction in Dubai’s prestigious Business Bay area. Like an object from another planet. You can see it best from Al Khail Road (or if you get lost directly in the Business Bay area like me – they don’t put “No Entry” signs or the like there and nobody stops you from entering, so typically Dubai). I’ve always asked myself what this weird honeycomb-like structured white thing was and got really excited when I read on Gulfnews today that this is the latest project of the internationally recognized architects Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto: the O-14, scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. You should see it in real life – it’s beautiful!
