Architects Xavier Vilalta Studio have won the competition with the theme : tower for Doha, Qatar. Called Alpha Project, the is based on tha patterns of ancient Arabic tiles.
It would be designed as an independent ecosystem to ensure stable living at places with harsher climes with the use of sustainable renewable energy measures.
The design is generated and melded by the surrounding environment, which works in harmony to utilize the available natural resources. The towers will incorporate passive design elements inspired by the vernacular architecture to harness energy from wind, water and sun. The outer façade of the energy-efficient towers is embedded with photovoltaic panels to harness while the entire organic framework works to facilitate natural pressure ventilation.
The design of the tower’s skin is based on the patterns of ancient Arabic GIRIH tiles that define and shade the semi-outdoor spaces from the interiors of the structure and then move towards the outside. The exterior pergolas shade the pathways that wind through the landscaped gardens.
The structure and planning of the scheme is designed to be efficient, advanced and sustainable. The accessibility and efficiency of the tower is improved with the use of connections made across the towers. The towers and bridges blend together to work as a whole and frame the core, public space. These also create a new typology of high-rise buildings.
