OMA reveals geometric Dhaka skyscraper as first Bangladesh venture

Dutch studio OMA has unveiled visuals of the geometric Dhaka Tower, its first venture in Bangladesh, which “expresses the aspirations of a dynamic nation”.

The 150-metre-high skyscraper will home places of work and be positioned on the shore of Hatirjheel Lake in a brand new business district on the fringe of Tejgaon, Dhaka.

Dhaka Tower was designed for developer Shaka Holdings by OMA associate Iyad Alsaka and would be the studio’s first-ever venture within the South Asian nation.

The skyscraper can have a pyramidal base and an extruded kind. An oblong core with panoramic lifts that may have views of the lake will join two triangular flooring plates.

“Our design for Dhaka Tower is impressed by the spirit of Bangladesh’s thriving economic system,” Alsaka mentioned. “Its form expresses the aspirations of a dynamic nation, making a daring assertion on town’s skyline.”

Either side of the 180,000-square-metre Dhaka Tower will characteristic atriums that may hook up with exterior areas.

Triple-height lobbies will sit on the centre of the constructing’s two triangular volumes and be surrounded by retail and eating areas.

Tejgaon, which Dhaka Tower will likely be positioned subsequent to, is a former industrial space in Dhaka that now homes each native and multinational firms.

OMA not too long ago unveiled an artwork museum extension in Buffalo with a clear “veil”, and topped Tiffany & Co’s Fifth Avenue flagship with a “jewelry field”.
