The 18-story Pixel Tower by James Law Cybertecture, which is planned for Dubai’s Waterfront, is inspired by the moving bubbles in a champagne glass with a design that targets the young and trendy.

The geometry of the openings minimizes in the southern direction of the sun to minimize heat gain, and maximizes in the northern direction of the sun to maximize views to the sea.

Due for completion in 2010, the building forms part of the agency’s ‘Cybertecture’ series, a range of high-tech solutions that thinks of structures as intelligent, customizable spaces. No matter where they are in the world, residents are always able to control and view their apartment, as well as the appliances within it, using mobile phones and PDAs. Fiber optic projections and animatronics presentations will also be incorporated.
