The building was designed by internationally renowned architects and engineers, Ben van Berkel and Werner Sobek.
UNStudio is the lead architect of the project with U+A Architects acting as the architect of record.
The lead engineer of the project is Werner Sobek with additional engineering duties being served by DeSimone.
The tower will contain a 257-room Mandarin Oriental hotel from floors 16 to 38, and 144 serviced residences on the upper floors of the building, as well as a series of vertical gardens designed by Amsterdam-based UNStudio.
There is a light museum inside the building which showcases new and historic technologies in the field.
The tower has the world’s tallest ceramic façade which helps regulate the internal temperature of the building as well as reducing the surrounding noise. The vertical gardens help to reduce carbon dioxide levels in building.
The residential sections of the tower are supported by sports facilities, retail outlets, restaurants and cafes in an attempt to create self-contained living quarters.
The exterior features a lighting rig which can be adjusted throughout the year to reflect various events and occasions.
