A waterfall building in answer to a desire for cultural and urban innovation in Dubai. A spectacular building, composed of six 110 m-high (360 ft) water storage towers. The mastery of water, a precious resource, is a major universal challenge. The building reproduces a waterfall comparable to the most remarkable natural sites, introducing a new dialog between nature and artifice. Its monumental, magnificent, and mythological character is mainly due to its proportions, its relationship to the city, and the power and energy of water. It evokes the wonders of the world with radicality and force.
