Dubai Mixed-Use Towers

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The Dancing Sisters rise more than 700 feet (210 metres) with a graceful lilt suggestive of two dancers in rhythm with one another, one convex, one concave, artfully connected yet independent.

Adjacent to the Burj Khalifa, these two slender towers express dynamic celebration and good luck to a booming city with a vertical skyline unlike any other in the world.  Often considered an architect’s playground, the people and culture of Dubai City were the primary inspiration for Fentress’ design. The towers were nicknamed the Spice Girls in reference to Dubai’s role in the spice trade and the musicality of the design in this state-of-the-art city of the first, the most, and the tallest.
