Phoenix Tower

Academic Project – 3rd Year [2 Months]

A mixed use commercial tower, the high-rise is designed to be supported by a structural system of hollow tubular trusses and the central core. The internal space is column free thereby freeing the plan. The building inherits its form from the commonly occurring Bangladeshi rural brick kiln and the naturally occurring beehive structure symbolizing a corporate identity of efficiency. The megalithic form tapers slightly indicating an upward reach towards the sky, serving as both a landmark and an inspirational sculpture.
