Al Bahr Towers is an award-winning development in the emirate of Abu Dhabi consisting of two 29-storey, 145m high towers. The distinguishing feature of the iconic towers is their protective skin of 2,000 umbrella-like glass elements that automatically open and close depending on the intensity of sunlight. Inspired by the 'mashrabiya', geometrically-designed wooden lattice screens that have been used to fill windows of traditional Arabic architecture since the 14th century, the 'intelligent' fašade of the Al Bahr Towers is dynamically controlled by a building management system.
