Garden in the Sky in Dubai at EXO 2020

EXPO in the Sky…

Expo 2020 in Dubai had many interesting buildings to offer. Our office was not only responsible for the extensive shading systems over the connecting paths of the Expo site. We also planned the rotating glass viewing platform “Sky Garden” (height: 55 m). The platform has a diameter of 15 m. It offers space for up to 100 people on two levels. The tower offers a fantastic panoramic view of the entire Expo site. The upper level of the platform was designed to be open, with shady trees at a lofty height. The lower level is air-conditioned and closed. Werner Sobek was responsible for the structural design of the observation tower, which is based on the design of the architectural office Asif Khan from London.
