Ubora Tower, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The U-Bora Tower Complex is a mixed-use development located in the heart of Business Bay, Dubai, UAE. The design has given equal attention to its three different uses include office, residential and retail complex, in order to maximize their opportunities and viabilities within the site’s context. The stability of the building is through the combined actions of the central core wall and perimeter frames tied in orthogonal directions for seismic and wind resistance. Chris was responsible for the concept and schematic design of the structural system while working for Whitby & Bird in 2006 - 2007.
