25 Tallest Buildings In The World

#19. Al Hamra Tower

Al Hamra Tower remains a symbol that symbolizes Kuwaiti national pride. The building seems, by all accounts, to be cut from a crystal, a void taken from the middle, with every floor pivoting counter-clockwise around the core. The outcome is a spiraling geometric shape that disentangles to the top. The void, which shifts from west to east, uncovers the strong southern center divider, which is visually distinct from the other coated and straightforward dividers wrapping around whatever remains of the building. Two strong “flared dividers” provide motion between these two areas, covering the intricate geometry of the turning floor plates. The following information provides more details about the building:
