LAVA
Michael Schumacher Tower
Abu Dhabi, UAE
The Michael Schumacher Tower is the first in a series of seven towers to be built worldwide.

Inspired by the geometrical order of a snowflake and the aerodynamics of a Formula 1 racing car, the tower encapsulates speed, fluid dynamics, future technology and natural patterns of organization. Rather than purely mimicking shapes in nature for their elegance and unpredictability, the architects learned from nature’s own geometrical orders creating highly efficient structures and intriguing spaces.

“We let the design unfold as a result of the project’s needs: optimal natural light and air distribution, maximum views, minimal structure, user comfort and an unrivaled water experience.”
Tobias Wallisser
The lower levels of the tower, traditionally the most difficult and least attractive area, has been reinterpreted as a series of prestigious wharf apartments, terraced similar to that of cruise ship decks. By widening the base, the tower is anchored into its surrounding water basin similar to the surrounding mangroves and nearby canals. The top Sky villas offer 270-degree views opposite the new cultural district on Saadyiat Island

The building features an iconic silhouette and a facade characterized by vertical slots with private balconies. A series of reflective fins generates a vertical dynamic and gives the building a constantly changing appearance.
The fins track the sun, control the solar shading and dissolve the rationality of the plan into a continuously evolving building volume.
The facade’s continuous surface enables curvature with a lot of repetition and the potential for standardization in the building process. State-of-the-art engineering and innovative materials will be used to achieve a fully sustainable performance.

“The unique collaboration with Michael Schumacher gave us new insights. Technology, precision, speed, elegance, paired with human intuition and extraordinary performance were a great source of inspiration for the design. Similar to the formula one operation, construction is a team sport with a lot of highly skilled experts. In this sense the architects take the driver seat in the process, taking the project to the physical limits of possibility.”
Alexander Rieck

Ground Breaking is planned for the beginning of 2009, with an expected completion date June 2011.
LAVA, the Laboratory for Visionary Architecture, was founded one year ago by Chris Bosse and Tobias Wallisser together with architect Alexander Rieck, innovation expert at the Fraunhofer institute in Stuttgart.
“The project brings together our previous experiences, the Mercedes-Benz Museum, a brand-owned museum with an extraordinary spatial concept exploring the latest digital design and fabrication technologies with the Water Cube Beijing, an example of the highest performance of both the building and the athletes, creating by a stunning atmosphere developed through the deliberate morphing of molecular science, architecture and phenomenology.”

這種風格似乎慢慢流行中,跳脫以往直線條的設計。建築本身被當作藝術品創作,夠炫!
