Five glass sculptures

Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi (UAE)

Recently, an ensemble consisting of five glass monoliths has embellished the ever growing skyline of Abu Dhabi. Due to their fully-glazed curtain walling, for which the Schüco UCC 65 SG system was used, the “Etihad Towers” soar dynamically and lightly into an almost permanently blue sky, which they reflect once more in their façades.
