Arrow DUBAI | Four Season Hotel | ? HEIGHT | ? FLOORS | NEVER BUILT

The new design of FOUR SEASONS Hotel in Dubai Festival City has been unveiled.

It went from this 320 meter tower:





to this:






A SSC forum member was involved on the design of the first one, but he mooved to a different job so we have no info on the second design, however it is obviously much shorter.

this seems like something that would happen in New York City, not Dubai. There are several buildings in Dubai which I do not like, yet that first design of the FOUR SEASONS was actually really really awesome. They should build it in America now.

^^ The second design has replaced the first one, so only one is going to be build (if no further design changes happen).

The first design was spectacular. I think the second is a real letdown and it's so completely different. Often times these redesigns just try to improve and refine the original but for some reason they just dropped the whole idea.

I like the second one better. I am glad they traded height for height's sake and went with something more innovative like China's TV building. I wonder how that clear part at the top will be executed.

The first was apparantly cancelled because it was unfeasible money-wise

Renderings will often add flares and whisps of light where the final structure will not contain such things. I hope thats not the case in this circumstance.

What would be really cool is if the horizontal portion shot out beams of light towards the diaginal portion and then refected up into space.

Only with mirrors to do that and it would be great wasting energy for nothing.

First one looks very Dubai-ish. Then again, the second one is even more fit for Dubai.

Ugh!

The effect of the white foggy area completing the box as shown in the rendering will obviously never be accomplished in real life. So, it would at least look a little better if the planes of cutout sections on each tower were parallel.

Is it U/C or is it still proposed? A diagram would be nice too.

^^ I think it might be a stale proposal at this stage. Nothing has happened at all.
