YAS Hotel Dubai

YAS Hotel Dubai

A 500-Room Hotel Complex - part of an ambitious $36 Billion Marine Development

The architect envisioned an architectural landmark embodying various key influences and inspirations ranging from the aesthetics and forms associated with speed, movement and spectacle to the artistry and geometries forming the basis of ancient Islamic art and craft traditions.

The challenge behind providing 3D Modeling and Scheduling service was the significance of the project’s design - a 217-meter expanse of sweeping, curvilinear forms constructed of steel and 5,800 pivoting diamond-shaped glass panels. This Grid-Shell component affords the building an architecture comprised of an atmospheric-like veil that contains two hotel towers and a link bridge constructed as a monocoque sculpted steel object passing above the Formula 1 track that makes its way through the building complex. The Grid-Shell visually connects and fuses the entire complex together while producing optical effects and spectral reflections that play against the surrounding sky, sea and desert landscape.

The complexity and entire jewel-like composition of the project responds visually and tectonically to its environment to create a distinct and powerful sense of place as well as a breath-taking backdrop to the Formula 1 and other events that the building will celebrate.
