Plans unveiled for Mumbai's tallest building
May 08, 2013 - India
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture has unveiled its competition-winning proposal to build Mumbai's tallest skyscraper.
The 400-metre-high, 116-storey Imperial Tower would become the tallest building in the Indian city if construction goes ahead.
The tower would have a slender, aerodynamic shape designed to "confuse the wind" and withstand strong currents, according to Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture.
Green terraces called "sky gardens" would also break up wind currents, say the architects, whose kilometre-high Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia is currently under construction.
The proposal includes plans for 132 residential units, some as large as 1,115 square metres, along with smaller serviced apartments.
