We are proud to present the visuals for the "Crescent Moon Tower" architectural design project that was entirely, from identifying the underlying concept to drafting the actual design and preparation of the project documentation, created and developed by the Transparent House team. The project was submitted for the 11th ThyssenKrupp Elevator Architecture Award and was highly regarded by the professionals and the public.

According to the conditions of the Architectural Design Idea Competition for the erection of a Tall Emblem Structure in Za'abeel Park in Dubai, UAE, the proposed structure should signify the new face of Dubai, promote tourism, recreational, scientific and cultural activities.

Considering the stunning development of Dubai from a small city built around a trading port into one of the most prominent locations in the modern world, its proliferating economy, business, trade, and cultural life, our intent for the Tall Emblem Structure is that the proposed building should reflect both the historical roots of Dubai and its contemporary state and embody the unity of the two.

According to the intent, the idea of the origins is embedded in the shape of the building. It is a crescent which identifies Dubai as belonging to the Islamic world. On the other hand, the very fact that such a structure can be erected, the state-of-the-art technologies applied is a manifestation of the modern level of technical and economic development of Dubai.

The building was designed to accommodate a children's library, a conference facility, cafes, a restaurant and an open-air observation platform in the top part of the structure, all intended to make the building a multi-purpose destination, popular among the locals and tourists alike.

In the course of the project our team developed a number of static and animated visuals and a set of project documentation to be submitted for the competition, including structural engineering substantiation and presentation panels.
