The team of AMBS Architects proposed world’s tallest building (the Bride Tower), a 1,152-meter-tall skyscraper located at Iraq’s Basra Province.
There it is, this could be the world’s tallest building some day. The team of AMBS Architects recently published this design proposal for a 1,152-metre-tall skyscraper called the Bride Tower, which is planned in Iraq’s Basra Province. If this ambitious project is actually realized, the skyscraper would surpass Jeddah’s Kingdom Tower (currently still under construction) and Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which is currently the highest building in the world.
AMBS Architects is an internationally operating firm with offices in Baghdad and London. They described their proposal as “the first vertical city in the world”. The architectural construction will be composed of four connected towers with 230 storeys and an 188-meter-tall antenna on the top of the buildung. With a height of 1,152 meter, the Bride Tower would be 152 meters higher than the planned height of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture’s Kingdom Tower, which is currently under construction in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. At the present time, the title of the world’s tallest building is currently held by Dubai’ Burj Khalifa with a height of 830 meter.
The Bride tower would be surrounded by a glazed canopy that provides shadow to the buildings and public areas below. With this ambitious project, the competition for the world’s tallest building goes into a new round.
