These beautiful twin office towers in Abu Dahbi, completed in 2012, have a unique geometric “skin”: their facade reacts to sunlight, constantly following the movement of the sun and blocking it out. Designed by Aedeas architecture and design team, the 145 metres tall facade is inspired by the”mashrabiya”, a traditional Arabic lattice shading device.

Beautiful!
