I Love Modern Architecture – Dorobanti Tower: Bucharest, Romania


Designed by star-architect Zaha Hadid, Dorobanti Tower was designed to establish an iconic presence in the heart of Bucharest. The new tower is a unique mix of a distinctive form, ingenious structure, and spatial qualities of sky-high living. If approved, it will be the tallest building (656 ft) in the city and will provide a 5-star hotel along with apartments. The meandering exterior columns are formed of concrete filled steel which both adds strength to the structure and provides fire resistance for the steel frame. Designed for the client, Smartown Investments, there will also be a large retail area located in the base of the tower. Dorobanti Tower is scheduled for completion in 2013.
