Artist Statement:


    The Signature Towers, 375-meter skyscrapers in the Dubai Business Bay, include offices, hotel, residential, retail, bridges, a waterfront park, and a promenade. The architectural concept takes a “choreographed” movement that combines the three towers in one overall gesture and “weaves” a series of public spaces through them: the podium, the bridges, and the landscape beyond.
